...and it can also be a sign of a heart attack too, if the C-reactive protein is high.
So in case it's you, talk to your doctor soon.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

High protein in the blood can mean a variety of things. It could be a sign that a person has HIV/AIDS, liver problems or an issue with their bone marrow.

Some people with high levels of protein in their blood simply don't have enough fluids and their bodies are suffering from dehydration.

Ask your doctor what it could mean in your case, if your protein levels in your blood are high.
