Hi there,

I would need to see the exact units of the lab tests performed. A screen shot would be most helpful - but please omit your name or any identifying data.

Hello Dr Weinstein,
Thank you for responding back to my post/inquiry. I really appreciate it, Ive read up quite a bit about what could cause a inordinately high protein count and almodt all of them are horrifying.
I am still trying to get access to the records online as soon as I do i woll post them.
I do remember a few, the main one being the protein around 133 and the expected range is only 13-20. While Im not a doctor, the only thing that doesnt have me in a panic attack is that I feel like my near perfect levels for blood pressure, cholesterol and some others would rule out most ofthe serious causes.
