Hello,

It’s my first priority to serve you.
Thanks for providing more information.

Normally the albumin/globulin (A/G) ratio is greater than 1(around 1.1 to 1.8)

Firstly normal range can vary from lab to lab.

Sed rate is 0-20 mm in 1 hour.

Her sed rate is slightly high.

Her symptoms are suggestive of possible causes like Hypothyroidism,Autoimmune disorder,Liver disease.

So she needs to be seen by an Endocrinologist for a clinical examination.

Further blood work including Thyroid function test,CRP,CBC,Urinalysis,S.Bilirubin levels,Absolute eosinophil count should be done along with CT scan.

She should start a multivitamin.

Also hydrate herself with plenty of fluids.

Eat small meals throughout the day.

OTC Claritin can be helpful.

Oatmeal bath can be tried.

If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
