Done blood test. Why is my protein level elevated?

Hi, I am 35, 5feet, 3inches and weigh 61kg. I do not drink or smoke. I had a blood test done recently and had this result Blood urea -9.7 Blood urea Nitrogen 4.5 Total Bilurubin 0.58 SGOT - 22.4 SGPT - 0.1 Alkaline Phosphatase - 42.0 Total protein - 8.83 Albumin 4.76 Globulin 4.07 A/G ratio 1.2 Creatinine - 0.84 Uric Acid 2.9 I am not sure why my protein level is slightly elevated, but I presume it is because I rarely take water. I try to but manage only about 0.5L in a day, which is low

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
all are normal reports. mild elevation of protein is not of much value. albumin:globulin ratio is not reversed to indicate a disease.
Good luck !
