C-Reactive Protein
Aug 26, 2004
[COLOR=Indigo][CENTER][B]Hello Everyone :wave: [/B] [/CENTER]

[INDENT]I was wondering if anyone had a blood test named, "C-Reactive Protein." I had just got the results of my most recent lab testing from my Rheumatologist office as I had them fax this to me today. On my paper work it does state that the reference range for this specific test should be <0.8 and my test came back outside of the range at 1.3
I had asked my primary doctor about this as I had an appointment with him today and all he said is that I have inflammatory problems. Gosh I already know this as my last sed rate was 37. I had originally thought that my rheu. was going to order another sed rate but he did not. I had one other test come back abnormal which was Bilirubin total 0.1, and that was low, which I don't think that is a concern. What I don't know is if I should be at all worried about the C-Reactive Protein Results. I don't see my Rheumatologist for 3 months. [/INDENT]

As I understand it, C Reactive Protein is just another measure of inflammation. I just had a dr. appt and I have normal sed rate, but elevated C reactive protein. My rheumy explained it as just another inflammatory measure.

Hope this helps a little...
