Hi, I haven't been diagnosed with anything because my doctors said there's nothing to worry about, but I've been studying about Myeloma and I'm suddenly kinda scared about my blood test results I took in January 2017.
I'm 21 this year. I have a slightly high ALP of 119, which according to Australian guidelines, is over the 115 limit. I also have high total protein of around 89, with slightly raised globulin levels. My total protein and raised globulin has been constant since I first tested my blood in 2013. All my red and white blood cell (neutrophils, lymphocytes etc.) counts are within normal range.
The doctor has sent me for a Myeloma test, and I have no paraprotein present. It may also be important to note that I've always had low vitamin D and Iron levels, as I was vegan and ate no dairy, meat or supplements, and I do not get enough sunlight. I have started eating eggs, dairy and meat 11 months ago so I'm not sure if my levels has improved yet.
I've read that high total protein may be a sign of HIV too, but both my partner and I have donated blood multiple times and we've always been asked to donate again, so I suppose we're negative.
My doctor has said it may be that my body is just like that normally, and that there's nothing to be worried about. I'm still paranoid though, should I go for another blood test with a different doctor?
