Hi doctor,

I have a high WBC count, elevated CRP level, muscle wasting, leg swelling, DM, gastritis, and myeloma, which was normal two years back. Now again, I have to go for a myeloma test or protein electrophoresis, or immunofixation. Please guide me.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

For gastritis, a Rabeprazole-like drug can be prescribed. But as per mentioned history, globulin is elevated, and your kappa to lambda ratio is high. So it is better to investigate further to rule out plasma cell dyscrasias. For that, investigations like immunofixation electrophoresis, serum calcium, creatinine, and bone marrow aspiration study need to be done.

I hope this will help you.

Consult a physician for examination and discuss these investigations. Get back with more queries if you still have doubts.
