What is a C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test?
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test measures the levels of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) in the blood, which is a protein made by your liver. It will be sent into your bloodstream in response to inflammation. Inflammation is your body's way of protecting your tissues if you have been injured or have an infection. This test helps to identify the presence of any inflammatory disorders or infections in the body.

What does it measure?
The C-Reactive Protein test is used to:Determine if someone’s symptoms are related to inflammatory or non-inflammatory conditions. The result along with other findings can help narrow down the possible causes.The C-Reactive Protein level can also indicate if the inflammation is acute (severe and sudden, such as with an allergic reaction)or chronic (persistent, such as with diabetes, heart disease, including atherosclerosis, or myocarditis).The higher the C-Reactive Protein levels, the greater the amount of inflammation in the body. The C-Reactive Protein test is performed with another blood test called Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate. These are both non-specific markers for inflammation but together can offer important clues as to what is going on in the body.
