The A/G ratio is calculated from measured total protein, measured albumin, and calculated globulin (total protein - albumin). Normally, there is a little more albumin than globulins, giving a normal A/G ratio of slightly over 1.
Also, is a high a G ratio bad? If your protein level is low, you may have a liver or kidney problem. If your protein level is high, you may have a gastrointestinal problem. Low or high A/G ratios can help your healthcare providers identify other health problems, including certain cancers, autoimmune diseases, or some genetic disorders.
Also, what causes low Ag ratio?
Low A/G ratio may be caused by: Overproduction of globulins, such as seen in multiple myeloma or autoimmune diseases. Underproduction of albumin, such as may occur with cirrhosis. Selective loss of albumin from the circulation, as may occur with kidney disease (nephrotic syndrome)
What is Ag ratio in liver function test?
This is a blood test to measure the levels of protein in your body. Your liver makes most of the proteins that are found in your blood. Albumin is one major type of protein. This test provides information about the amount of albumin you have compared with globulin. This comparison is called the A/G ratio.
