High blood protein

Find a symptom by its first letter

Definition

Elbow pain usually isn’t serious, but because you use your elbow in so many ways, elbow pain can be very frustrating. Your elbow is a complex joint; it allows you to both extend and flex, as well as rotate your hand and forearm. Since most movements are a combination of these actions, you may sometimes find it difficult to describe exactly which movement brings on the pain.

High blood protein rarely causes signs or symptoms on its own. But sometimes it is uncovered while you’re having blood tests done as part of an evaluation for some other problem or symptom.

Causes

Possible causes of high blood protein include:

  • Bone marrow disorder
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Amyloidosis
  • Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS)
  • Chronic inflammatory conditions
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Dehydration (which may make blood proteins appear falsely elevated)

A high-protein diet doesn’t cause high blood protein.

High blood protein is not a specific disease or condition in itself. It’s usually a laboratory finding uncovered during the evaluation of a particular condition or symptom. For instance, although high blood protein is found in people who are dehydrated, the real problem is that the blood plasma is actually more concentrated.

Certain proteins in the blood may be elevated as your body fights an infection or some other inflammation. People with certain bone marrow diseases, such as multiple myeloma, may have high blood protein levels before they show any other symptoms.

The role of proteins

Proteins are large, complicated molecules that are vital to the function of all cells and tissues. They are made in many places throughout your body and circulate in the blood.

Proteins take a variety of forms such as albumin, antibodies and enzymes and have many different functions, including:

  • Helping you fight disease
  • Regulating body functions
  • Building muscles
  • Transporting drugs and other substances throughout the body
