In brief: A/G Ratio

Normally there is a little more Albumin than globulins, giving a normal a/g ratio of slightly over 1.
Because disease states affect the relative amounts of Albumin and globulin, the a/g ratio may provide a clue as to the cause. A high a/g ratio suggests underproduction of immunoglobulins as may be seen in some genetic deficiencies. More specific tests are needed for an accurate diagnosis.
