ELEVATED TOTAL PROTEIN AND SODIUM LEVEL

I went to my Dr. for yearly physical.  My good test came out and she sad your blood test is good. But when i looked at it my total protein level and sodium was little high? what would be the reason?

A slightly elevated total protein and sodium level could just mean you were a bit dehydrated.  However, depending on your age, they could mean something more sinister.  Follow up with your physician to find out why the blood tests are a bit off.  He/she may want to repeat them to see if they normalize.  Best of luck to you!

Thank You for answering. 2 months ago i started to using Claravix and had blood taking 2 time. In my tests everything was normal. Now i feel my heart about to fly so fast and my hib hurts when i step on it. I am wondering that could be from accutane. I am taking 80 mg a day. Thank You
