FAQs Around CRP Test

A CRP level above 50 mg/dL is generally considered dangerous, indicating severe inflammation or infection. It's crucial to consult a healthcare professional promptly for further evaluation and appropriate treatment.

If a person has high levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), it could be indicative of several serious conditions. These may include infections, autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, inflammatory bowel disease, certain types of cancer, or cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack or stroke.

Inflammatory markers are substances in the body that indicate the presence and severity of inflammation. Common examples include C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and pro-inflammatory cytokines. Measuring these markers helps diagnose and monitor conditions such as infections, autoimmune diseases, and chronic inflammation.

A blood test can assess chronic inflammation by measuring C-reactive protein (CRP) levels. CRP, produced by the liver, increases in response to inflammation. A CRP level of 1 to 3 milligrams per liter of blood typically indicates a low but persistent state of inflammation.
