Protein electrophoresis now M-Protein, serum .98 over previous of .83. Lambda light chain free now 30 over previous of 22. Kappa/Lambda free ratio is within normal.WBC Diff shows absolute neutrophils at 8.2 over previous 5.5. What in God's name would explain this bizarre IgM result. Your thoughts please?

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You have Monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance. SO that explains the raised levels of igM. As far as your other labs are concerned they are perfectly in the normal range but i still want yo to get in touch with your doctor to rule out myeloma exacerbations.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
