You need to not self-diagnose here !! Yes to that...

Follow up with your doctor on the questionable results...

Don't panic!!

Quit assuming that you have a terrible diagnosis...

You need for one to have the urine protein quantified...

This may be done with a 24 hour urine for protein and creatinine

You need to have the serum or blood protein better identified ( albumin vs other proteins )

You may need to have a serum protein electrophoresis ..

Different conditions might be at the root to the findings...

Simply saying a result such as serum protein was high tells me practically nothing...was it only barely above normal range for example??

So the exact numbers and types of the detailed results are needed...

Added tests are more likely needed
