If you need to know which are the proteins reference range or you require more information about the role of proteins in the blood you can visit: Normal protein levels in the blood
A high level of total proteins in the blood may be due to:
In any case, it is interesting to know which of protein is above the normal range (the albumin or the globulins) for a better diagnosis.
Protein values are usually given in g/dl but sometimes you can see these values in g/L following the International System of Units (SI). In case your values are in g/L you can convert them using this tool:
Protein values are a bit high. It can be due to a temporal issue such as a dehydration.
It is advisable to study the albumin and the globulin levels to know if a specific type of proteins are above the normal range and it can give a clue.
If nothing rare appears, you can take a new blood test in a few months and it is probable that your protein levels return to normal range.
The elevation may be due to the increase of a specific type of proteins. Albumin and globulin levels should be studied to know the possible cause.

IMPORTANT: These levels are expressed in g/dl. They are an example of a healthy man of about 45 years old with a balanced diet, no known disease and not taking any medication. The ranges can be different depending on the laboratory or on your personal circumstances.
