What is it?
Globulins are round-shaped proteins produced by your liver. Globulin proteins include carrier proteins, enzymes, immunoglobulins (antibodies), and other proteins.
They transport nutrients and fight infection. Globulins are proteins that do not fall into the albumins and are calculated by subtracting Albumin level from Total Protein measure. These measures are used in the investigation of autoimmune diseases, infections and cancers, as well as liver and kidney diseases.
If your indicative globulin calculation is lower than the reference range for our laboratory:
Generaly, low globulin can be caused by a kidney disease or liver disease, immune deficiency or malnutrition and substantial lack of nutrients in the diet, among other causes.
You can discuss this result with your GP.
If your indicative globulin calculation is higher than the reference range for our laboratory:
Generally, high globulin level can be a sign of an infection (viral, as well as bacterial), inflammatory or immune disorder as well as some cancers.
You should discuss this result with your GP.
