Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

You are being tested to see if you are losing the immunoglobulins in the urine, which can happen when someone has low immunoglobulins.

Another reason to check for urine free light chains is to rule out a condition that is called as Multiple Myeloma, a kind of blood cancer.
