High protein in the blood high levels

Common Questions and Answers about High protein in the blood high levels


Avatar m tn Too much protein is not good for organs and can do damage. Usually, if the protein is high, the body excretes protein through the eyes. People who wear contact lenses, will see their lenses turn yellow due to this. Concerned, but not overly worried.
1713150 tn?1314470942 the amount of protein in your diet should not effect the protein level in your blood that much, unless you are taking extra protein like Body Builders use protein supplements. I don't have MS, but I don't think this sounds like an MS thing either. Some illness causes the body to make too much of certain proteins that can then show up in the blood.
Avatar n tn I went to the OB/GYN this week and they told me that I had a high level protein in my urine. I was told to do another test, which resulted in the same thing. They told me to make an appointment with a urologist. I am a very healthy person with no high blood pressure. Could it just mean that I am dehydrated? She told me I needed to drink more water. I am a little worried because everything on the web talks about kidney disease. What about maybe getting a second opinion?
Avatar f tn I had some blood work done and the only thing that was abnormal was that my protein level was high. I don't remember how high, I didn't really think much of it because my doctor told me not to. She couldn't think of anything involving it being high that would affect someone my age. I'm still tired though and having a hard time functioning. I can sleep for 12 hours and still need a nap by the time a few hours of being awake have passed. I'm not really sure where to go from here.

1437981 tn?1283852358 Diet can also play a part and there is something also called 'orthostatic proteinuria' which has normal levels of protein in the urine while the person is laying down, or asleep, and then appears when the person has been up walking around for awhile. If you are pregnant you can also have protein in the urine which is one of the signs of preeclampsia (this also causes high blood pressure) and can be dangerous.
283893 tn?1287326769 320 in nucleolar pattern, i have had an eeg, emg, ct, blood, urine and all the eye test you could immagine but these are the only definate findings from all my test. If you have any thoughts i would be very happy to hear them.
1837090 tn?1328043721 Pregnant with my 5th baby and have had pretty crappy morning sickness I'm currently 16 weeks and since my first apt At maybe 7 weeks I've been showing a lot of protein in my urine, the first time it was 2+ and the the pat two times it was 3+ the last one was just today at my drs. My Dr is concerned because my actual urine analysis showed no signs of infections or illness at all besides this ton of protein always in my urine.
Avatar m tn What I look at is the difference between the protein and the albumin level. If the difference is greater than 4, then there are extra proteins floating around from somewhere. There are a few things I think about in this scenario -- HIV, Hepatitis B or C, and paraproteinemias (such as multiple myeloma, amyloidosis, etc). Some people have a difference greater than 4 and none of these are the cause, but they are usually things that I check, especially if the person has risk factors.
Avatar f tn I've had 3 blood tests done within the past couple months. The first blood test I had was done a month and a half ago and my Total protein was 7.7 G/DL, Albumin=4.7 G/DL, and Globulin=3.0. The lab work was done at a smaller regional facility. This bloodwork was done as a general checkup. The 2nd blood test I had done was for life insurance reasons and this was done roughly 5 days after.
Avatar f tn There are very many causes for high protein levels in a dog's urine, the most common being diet - though other causes can be more serious. I would start writing down everything you are feeding her, including all treats, and then pass this information on to your vet when you next see them.
Avatar f tn It depends how high...with my first my pressure and protein levels increased slowly from wk34 to wk38, by wk38 they induced me because my levels got too high for comfort...Baby was considered full term, So there was no reason to risk me going into full eclampsia.
Avatar n tn i have been diagnosed with high bp, high levels of proteins and creatinine levels in my urine ,i have lower back pain can you give me any idea what is my problem
1756475 tn?1330542313 Which is high levels of protein in ur urine and it also cause high bp. They will do many cath samples of urine and if it gets to bad the will induce labor. but they monitor u because if ur bp becomes a problem they can give u meds in ur iv when u deliver to bring it down.
Avatar n tn Yes I she did the 24 hour urine test as well. They called today and said it was high the protein levels.. monitor my blood pressure soon as i did it. It was 151/100 then 157/100 and kept going up. My sister dropped me off, doctor sent me to labor and delivery to start some meds to help baby's lungs develope. One my blood pressure reached 190/ 110 they gave me some meds to prevent me having a seizure. my blood pressure went down been down a few hours now.
Avatar n tn Total proteins are mainly constituted by albumin and globulin, but other proteins too make up the total protein component of blood. While 8.3 is higher than the range, this small hike is clinically acceptable and usually does not indicate a disease. Higher total protein levels are seen in chronic inflammation or infection, HIV, hepatitis B or C, multiple myeloma and in Waldenstrom's disease. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
1756475 tn?1330542313 Has anyone else been told that their protein levels were high? My blood pressure was still fine but they are concerned that my proteins were higher then what is the normal. I'm trying not to stress out over it because that makes your blood pressure go up but it's not helping out too much at the moment. I've actually been told most of my life that my protein levels were higher, any ideas how to reduce them too?
Avatar f tn The higher-protein group showed better health across the board. People in that group had greater decreases in blood pressure, LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. What’s more, their estimated 10-year risk of heart disease decreased compared to those on the lower protein track. Had these subjects been allowed to lose weight, the results may have been even more dramatic. About 30 percent of your calories should come from protein.
4047346 tn?1360899819 So my midwife seemed a bit worried, my blood pressure was higher than normal and i had protein on my pee stick thing, she took blood ryte then n there to check my uric levels etc why?and wants to come visit me in two days to check my blood pressure, she also booked me in for a scan to check, why would she be checking my uric levels for? Im 39+2.
Avatar n tn The blood test came back with no problems, but the Creatinine levels and Protein levels in the urine where too high. The GP told me that my kidneys are under stress, is this correct? My GP advised me to have a second 24 hour urine and blood test done in 5 months. Do you think that is to long to wait for a second test is quite worried? Which levels of Creatinine and Protein in the urine is too high?
Avatar f tn had blood work done 3/10/2014 now I have high cholesterol,triglycerides, high globulin levels and small elevation in protein blood level...is the medication the reasons since diet and exercise hasn't changed?
Avatar m tn 10 to 80 mcg/dL Your liver may not work properly if you have high levels of ammonia in your blood. Ammonia is a chemical made by bacteria in your intestines while you process protein. Your body treats ammonia as a waste product. It turns it into glutamine and urea. Then the urea travels to the kidneys and is eliminated in your urine. Ammonia will build up if the liver is too damaged to get rid of urea. This can sometimes happen if you have advanced liver disease.
Avatar n tn I ask him about the PTH level being 46 with the high calcium levels. He just said that the parathyroid was not the cause of the high calcium. He said the best case scenerio would be MGUS. I guess my question is twofold. First, even though I have this monoclonal protein would it still be possible for the parathyroid to be causing the high calcium levels? Second, If it was the monoclonal protein or myeloma causing the high calcium levels wouldn't the PTH level be very low?
Avatar m tn He was advised to stop the high protein diet which he did. He went back for repeat test and his levels had gone up to 700. last week he had repeat blood tests which indicated his cretine kinase levels were 1040. the gp has no idea what is going on. the Dr said with these results he should be in agony. He is due to see a specialist in March. He has no other symptoms, all other blood tests came back normal. I am more worried about this than he is!!!! Does anyone have any idea what this means?
Avatar n tn my son is 7 years old and every time they do blood work his complement 4 and ch50 are high. they even tested him when he was not sick and the levels are high. he complains of right leg pain at night also not every day though. should I be concerned? I went to a orth and he said it was growing pains bu I still dont know why his blood work is abnormal all the time.
