Well they said my inflammation in the blood levels were slightly high before this was over a month a go so they did another test.

Thanks for details

The normal serum protein level is up to 8 gram/dl

So if it is 16 grams it is high

This needs to be discussed with your doctor for the possible cause

It will depend on other findings on your blood

If none else is abnormal then nothing to worry about

It can be due to inflammation or infection in the body

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

I went to the Dr's because I was feeling very tired symptoms were sinus tachycardia slightly swollen gland in throat magnesium and vitamin d deficiency and a positive clotting test result?

So most likely you are running an infection and that is why a high protein

It will normalize once infection will settle down
