Kappa Light Chain Serum and Ratio Question

I have had many symptoms that had my other docs send me to hemo/onc.  I just got bloodwork back and see that Kappa Light chain, Free is 33.5H and Kapp/Lambda Light Chain Ratio is 1.90H. 

Is this something that is significant?  My other docs with my drop in WBC and other labs were worried about multiple mylenoma already and that's why I was sent here.  The Immunoglobulins were all okay. 

Would this be a wait and see approach or maybe MGUS?

Thank you so much - Blessings!

Hello .... I have a similar situation. My light chains are increasinig everytime I get 3 month blood and urine tests. It started at 30 then went to 40 now it's 50. I don't have a "M" spike but My primary doc says I have MGUS, my cardiologist says it's Smoldering Myeloma. My Hematologist doesn't call it anything but says we will keep watching it till it hits 100 and then do a Bone Marrow Biopsy.
