From Alford, Florida, USA:

My 16 year old son has always had a high blood protein level, but various checks of kidneys always show no problems. He also has a moderately severe acne problem and moderately severe mood swings (up or down) which seem to be related to time of day/meals. The mood swings can be a real trial to him and those around him. Could any of this be related to blood sugar problems?


It is unlikely that an elevated protein level is related to diabetes or blood sugar problems.
