Hi Sam,

The A/G ratio is associated with protein level. It is the ratio of albumin to globulins. Serum proteins are generally 50-60% albumin, and also include globulins, and other proteins. A normal A/G ratio is around 1.1 to 1.8. A ratio of 2.2 is not unusual with some health conditions. Your care provider may be monitoring the level to determine if it is improving over time. Please feel comfortable asking your provider or his staff what the lab results mean for you, and whether they indicate an improvement in your condition.
