c-Reactive Protein (CRP)

c-Reactive Protein (CRP)

A CRP test may be used to find or monitor conditions that cause inflammation. The level of C-reactive protein (CRP) increases when there’s inflammation in your body. A simple blood test can be done to check your C-reactive protein level.

These include:

  • Bacterial infections, such as sepsis, a severe and sometimes life-threatening condition
  • A fungal infection
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, a disorder that causes swelling and bleeding in the intestines
  • An autoimmune disorder such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
  • An infection of the bone called osteomyelitis.

You may need this test if you have symptoms of a serious bacterial infection. Symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Rapid breathing
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Nausea and vomiting

If you’ve already been diagnosed with an infection or have a chronic disease, this test may be used to monitor your treatment. CRP levels rise and fall depending on how much inflammation you have. If your CRP levels go down, it’s a sign that your treatment for inflammation is working.

Note : A CRP test is sometimes confused with a high-sensitivity-(hs) CRP test. Although they both measure CRP, they are used to diagnose different conditions. An hs-CRP test measures much lower levels of CRP. It is used to check for risk of heart disease.

  • Reference ranges : CRP is measured in milligrams per liter (mg/L). Results for a standard CRP test are usually given as follows:
  • Normal: Less than 10 mg/L
  • High: Equal to or greater than 10 mg/L

Note: Abnormal range values may vary depending on the laboratory doing the test. A high CRP test result is a sign of acute inflammation. It may be due to serious infection, injury or chronic disease. Your doctor will recommend other tests to determine the cause.

  • Results for an hs-CRP test are usually given as follows:
  • Lower risk of heart disease: hs-CRP level less than 2.0 mg/L
  • Higher risk of heart disease: hs-CRP level equal to or greater than 2.0 mg/L
