3 doctors weighed in:

I had a total protein level of 6.1 and an albumin level of 3.4. All other bloodwork is normal. My only symptom is some fatigue. What is going on?

In brief: Family practice.

I don't think your fatigue is related to your protein level.
I don't know what other tests were done. Check for anemia and thyroid dysfunction . Virus infections can cause chronic fatigue syndrome. See your dr again if persists.

In brief: High antibodies?

Addiitonal tests are merited in your cases such as a serum protein electrophoresis (spep)- in cwertain illnesses, your body can be producing alot of antibodies while making you tired at the same time.
Albumin levels that are elevated needs addiitonal information - see your doctor and clarify this issue.
