Overview of C-Reactive Protein Qualitative

Test Description

This test is usually ordered when your doctor suspects that you have an acute condition causing inflammation, such as a serious bacterial or fungal infection or when you are suffering from an inflammatory disorder such as arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, or inflammatory bowel disease.

Why Get Tested

  1. If you have signs or symptoms of bacterial infection like fever, chills, rapid heart rate 
  2. It is ordered on a regolar basis to monitor autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus

Precautions

  • Do not eat or drink anything other than water for 8-12 hours before the test.

What Results of C-Reactive Protein Qualitative mean?

Interpretations

  • High CRP level suggests the presence of inflammation but does not identify the cause
  • In people with chronic inflammatory conditions, high level of CRP suggests a flare up or that treatment has not been effective 
  • If CRP level was initially high and it starts dropping, it means the infection or inflammation is subsiding or responding to treatment
