Hi June
Hypergammaglobulinemia is basicay an increase in immunoglobulins in the blood and can be associated with lots of different things.
Its one of the more detailed tests that is usaly run by rheumatologist to look deeper into effects of the disease.
I haver inserted a couple of links which explain the term and also give some information about the results.

I am lucky as i have just had the tests and mine were all within normal reference ranges although a couple were a bit close to the edge!

I hope this helps.

Take Care

Good Luck

Cassie :)
