Prealbumin elevated, does it mean anything?

Hi, I've been having lots of misc symptoms (fatigue, daily headaches, tendonitis, short of breath, nausea, bloating, belching, constipation/diarrhea,).  Anyway, my GI decided to check for malnutrition by checking my prealbumin level.  Evidently, a low prealbumin level might signal malnutrition, but my levels are elevated.  Is this significant?
