Hi, I had a blood test back in January that came back showing a 'little bit of excess production of antibodies in my bone marrow' (faint monoclonal banding in gamma region it says on test results). I have to have a repeat test (electrophoresis) plus a free light chains test in the next few months. I am concerned at what this means, what they are looking for etc. Can anyone help explain this and whether I need to be concerned?
These are my test results
Total protein 71g/L (ref 65-85)
albumin 44g/L (ref 38-50)
Alpha-1 Globulins 3.4 (ref 2.1 -3.5)
Alpha-2 Globulins 8.2 (ref 5.1 - 8.5)
Beta-1 Globulins 5.8 (ref 3.4 - 5.2)
Beta-2 Globulins 2.4 (ref 2.3 - 4.7)
IgG 10.4 (ref 5.2 -16)
IgA 1.08 (ref 0.85 - 3.50)
IgM 0.55 (ref 0.32 - 3.00)
Monoclonal Banding - Comment - faint banding in the gamma region.
