I am reviewing it and post the reply in 5-7 minutes.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 7 months ago.

Your doctor may have suspected Multiple Myeloma by some of your symptoms. But since Bence Jones protein is absent, it is negative for multiple myeloma. There is nothing worrisome in urine electrophoresis.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

The test may be occasionally also ordered when doctors suspect autoimmune and inflammatory conditions or kidney disease.

But your report does not show anything significant.
