Overview

Test Description

CRP stands for C Reactive Protein. It is a biomarker positive in many acute and chronic conditions. 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. To check inflammatory process in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), pelvic inflammatory disease, inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease, etc
  3. To diagnose auto-immune diseases like lupus erythematossus (SLE), Sjogren’s syndrome, etc
  4. To diagnose acute heart attack
  5. To monitor efficacy of treatment for RA.

Precautions

No special preparation required


Test Results

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
