Overview

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 except water at least 9 to 12 hours before the test.


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
