CRP blood test result 170

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi All,

Just had a CRP blood test amoungst others to try and find out if there is inflammation going on in my body and yes it is, doc gave me result at 170, and yes that is a true figure 170, going for the repeat this monday.

FYI, I am on one hand a very fit 45 yr old and on another someone dogged with health issues, long story, am wondering if anyone has any experience with a figure this high?

thanks all,

    CRP is pretty arbitrary. Many of the sero-negative arthropathies never show positive but there can still be inflammation. Mine has been high just once since I was diagnosed. Keep a symptom diary - there are some good apps. That's the best test of what's going on. Try rosehip, there's good evidence it has anti-inflammatory effects without side effects.

    I too have ahd raised crp and esr blood results but not as high as urs. I have had the odd aches and pains and doctor think mine is my sinuses as I have problem with them. Im not sure what it is but have had my 5th course of anti biotics and back to the doctors on thursday for more bloods and various ana tests what ever they are lol. Has your doctor said what they think could be causing this? Do yuou get any pain or things like that? Take care
