Hi,
Welcome to health care magic!
Your AG Ratio is normal ( within the upper range of normal)

The optimal ratio is 1.7 to 2.2
Yours is 2.1
Its a calculated ratio.

Before doing the test one should take plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol as dehydration and alcohol can elevate the proteins.

God luck
God bless
