I had done my LFT (liver functioning) recently. Though everything was normal, protein content was found less than normal. 4 months ago I had severe diarrhea for about one week. After that I used to feel pretty week and less hunger. But now since one month or more I am feeling quite healthy, feeling enough hunger, taking milk every morning and eating other healthy foods. Still protein level was found less than normal and albumin, globulin were found in range but near to the lower one. Is it any kind of abnormality or disease or normal? Please help.

doctor1 MD

HI
Well come to HCM
The actual report of Liver function test is not given here but this nothing to worry because the clinical symptoms are very important than the report if you do not have any symptoms then no need to worry about this, hope this helps
