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

    The C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test is a blood test that quantifies the amount of CRP, which is produced by the liver in reaction to inflammation. High CRP levels suggest inflammation that could stem from various health issues. While the test does not identify the specific cause of the inflammation, it is a quick and straightforward procedure that offers essential information about your body's inflammation levels. Usually, doctors order the CRP test either on its own or as part of a comprehensive panel. Understanding your CRP levels can help your doctor monitor your condition and modify your treatment plan as needed.

    Hyderabad residents suffering from inflammatory conditions might find CRP tests particularly important. Since these tests indicate inflammation from specific health conditions, booking a CRP test in Hyderabad can provide valuable insights into overall health.

    C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Test Parameters

    Measuring the levels of CRP in your blood, the CRP test focuses only on one parameter. This test provides results in milligrams per litre (mg/L).

    Inflammation is a defence response of the body to heal infections, injuries, or diseases. It can be acute, such as from a sudden injury or cut, or chronic, due to factors like chronic infections or autoimmune disorders. A rise in the CRP levels indicate the presence of inflammation.
