Subsequently, question is, what does high total protein mean in a blood test?

High levels of total protein can mean that either albumin and globulin are high. High levels of albumin are usually because a person is dehydrated. High globulin levels can be from blood diseases such as multiple myeloma or autoimmune diseases such as lupus, kidney disease, or liver disease.

Is having high protein bad?

Under certain circumstances, our need for protein can increase. However, if we eat more than we need, the excess protein will be broken down and used for energy. Even though a relatively high protein intake is healthy and safe, eating massive amounts of protein is unnatural and may cause harm.

What happens when protein is high?

High-protein diets may tout weight loss, but this type of weight loss may only be short-term. Excess protein consumed is usually stored as fat, while the surplus of amino acids is excreted. This can lead to weight gain over time, especially if you consume too many calories while trying to increase your protein intake.
