Anthony Bray MD : Hello!
Anthony Bray MD : well there are different possible scenarios that could fit with your description .
can u give me alittle more info than that! everything else on his tests and previous tests were normal over the past year! give me some scenarios other than what I found out on internet please!
Anthony Bray MD : We do check protein/ albumin levels for one. Albumin is the most common protein in the blood. A high ratio of other protein vs Bunin may be due to increased immunoglobulin type proteins. This is the type that may be present in certain malignancies such as lymphoma for example.
Anthony Bray MD : In looking for lymphoma or multiple myeloma we do serum protein electrophoresis and urine protein electrophoresis to test for the type of abnormal protein spikes seen in these disorders .
Anthony Bray MD : There is also a test called C- reactive protein which is an inflammatory protein. It may be high in a large number of conditions which increase the general inflammation of the body. If the CRP were high then the doctor may look further for conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis ...
OK-u need to speak English to me!! I understand what lymphoma is! what else r you talking about as far as Alburmin or Bunin due to an increased immunoglobulin type proteins mean? And what is the basic type of medicine one needs to take to offset the high level (which we right now don't know how high is high) or if it is even cancer related!
Anthony Bray MD : iIt could be that he had protein in the urine in which case further investigation of the kidney function and kidney disease would be in order.
I just saw your additional answer--give me time to read it please!
Anthony Bray MD : i hope that this information is helpful for you! Let me know if you have further questions a d I will be happy to get back with you!

Anthony Bray MD : Sorry for the medical lingo... Some things are hard to translate though...
