Brief Answer:
Kappa Lamda ratio is more important.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.

You have elevated free kappa chain. it may be due to clonal production. But for interpretation many other values are required.


So please send me free light chain assay report, protein electrophoresis reports and all other reports you have gone through so that I can help you to guide exactly.

Hope I have answered your question. I will wait for your reports. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
