Category: Health
Expert:  Nurse Annie replied 8 years ago.

High levels can be due to severe dehydration, blood diseases such as multiple myeloma, Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia, macroglobulinemia, or hemolytic anemia, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, autoimmune hepatitis, or sarcoidosis, kidney disease, liver disease, or tuberculosis. Your doctor would need to do further testing to determine the exact cause. You can read more about this test here
