CRP BLOOD TEST

Posted , 4 users are following.

Has anyone ever had this test done before and if so what were your results? Going off my results online i believe they are <4.8 mg/L but im not a doctor so i dont know what that means. Looking on google never gives me any good outcomes. Im now panicking that there is something seriously untoward, it keeps saying that this tests you for Lymphoma etc.

    Just copying from a website,

    A high or increasing amount of CRP in your blood suggests that you have an acute infection or inflammation but it does not help in identifying its location or the condition causing it. In people with chronic inflammatory conditions, high concentrations of CRP suggest a flare-up or that treatment has not been effective.

    If the CRP concentration in your blood drops, it means that you are getting better and inflammation is being reduced.

    When your results fall below 10 mg/L, you no longer have clinically active inflammation.

    According to this, your result is fine. I'll put a link to the website following this post.

    from what I have read a normal CRP result is 3mg/l so yours is slightly raised if it is over 10 then it would suggest major inflammation from infection. I think if it was lymphoma or any other type of cancer the CRP would be much higher try not to worry.
