I was checked for protein and hematocrit levels just before donating plasma and my protein level was 8.9 and the highest number it can be is 9.0. The lady checking me said I should pay attention to that, but she did not explain why.

Proteins are made up of hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen which are arranged as strands of amino acids, essential in cellular maintenance and growth of the human body,,, as well as function... high protein levels can be a sign of or possibility of inflammatory disease, kidney disease and or problems and has also been linked to psychological distress... you need to see a physician have your blood drawn again and tested... advise of any medications taken and maybe any signs you may have with illness... if any... just like cholesterol levels, vitamin d levels and so on proteins need to be balanced as well... hope this was helpful... blaze22

Proteins are made up of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, which are arranged as strands of amino acids... essential in cellular maintenance, growth and function of the human body... too high of protein levels have been linked to inflammatory disease, proper kidney function and also a sign of psychological distress... I would see my physician have blood drawn again and be advised of how to get it to a proper level... hope this was useful... blaze22.
