    What is a C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Test?

    A C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test is a blood test used to measure the levels of CRP. The liver produces the protein known as CRP in reaction to inflammation. Elevated CRP levels are indicative of inflammation in the body, potentially due to various health conditions, though the test does not determine the specific cause of inflammation. This quick and simple procedure is valuable for gaining insight into your inflammatory status and is often conducted alone or as part of a larger panel of tests prescribed by a doctor. Knowing your CRP levels helps your doctor manage and adjust your treatment as needed.

    Residents of Gurgaon facing inflammatory conditions can greatly benefit from CRP tests. As these tests detect inflammation associated with specific health problems, so scheduling a CRP test in Gurgaon can be a key step in managing their health.

    C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Test Parameters

    The CRP test has only one parameter: determining the concentration of C-Reactive Protein in the blood. The test results are reported in milligrams per litre (mg/L).

    Inflammation is the body's defensive response to heal diseases, injuries, or infections and can be either acute, resulting from sudden cuts or trauma, or chronic, due to ongoing conditions like autoimmune disorders or chronic infections. Increased CRP levels are a sign of underlying inflammation in the body.

    • To monitor for inflammation or infection following a traumatic event.

    • To look for inflammation due to autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease.

    • To identify inflammation from bacterial or viral infections like osteomyelitis or sepsis.

    • To diagnose inflammation in lung diseases such as asthma.

    • To detect flare-ups or monitor the recovery process in rheumatoid arthritis.
