Question: Too much Protein in my Blood??


 weesz - Wed Jun 18, 2003 9:16 am

Hi all ,

Recently , i did a blood test to find out about my health status!

The blood test shown :

Haemoglobin : 16.5 g/dL
RBC : 5.26 x10(power of 12) /L
PCV : 46
MCV : 88 fL
MCH : 31 pg
MCHC : 35.6
RDW : 13.8 %


Liver Function Test

Total Protein : 80 g/L
Albumin : 50 g/L
Globulin : 30 g/L
Albu./Globu. ratio : 1.7
Alkaline Phosphatase : 67 U/L
Total Bilirubin : 22 umol/L


Though the above readings is still above the acceptable range, but it seems to be at higher end of the range!

I am a 26 years old guy with no history of illnesses and diseases. I maintained a diet of no meat (chicken,beef,pork etc). I take vegetables and seafood related like Fish and prawns only. I constantly take fruits in my diet too and also a supplement named Polbax ( Cu/Zn and Mn SOD) twice daily.

I wonder if there is too much Protein (from seafood) in my diet which leds to the high reading>? Could anyone comment on the above?


Please advise.

Thanks in advance
