    Default High albumin levels

    Not in pregnancy just in general, does anyone know what this means? I'm freaking out and can't see a doc until Monday

    Albumin is the protein in the blood.

    I usually have low. I made sure I ate lots of protein and it came back after about 6 months. I think I am low again. Evidently they should do more tests for me as it should not be as it is as I am not starving.

    I just did a quick google and the only thing that came up was dehydration. Had you not had a lot to drink? It also said some drugs increase albumin like insulin.

    I hate waiting!!
