I just want to know if it is diet related and what I can do to improve them

It depends on how low the globulin level is.  What is the range for your lab?  Slightly low levels are not usually a concern. Very low levels are due to malnutrition, liver or kidney disease , inflammatory bowel disease or hemolytic anemia.  You would have many symptoms with any of these disorders.

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
The range is 19-47

Eating more protein in the diet can raise globulins. I’d have to see all of the labs to better analyze your situation.  Make sure that you don’t have any of the conditions I mentioned.
