My mom's C-reactive protein (CRP) results came back at 119, and iron 3.4. She has anemia, fatigue, rapid weight loss, and tongue thrush. Blood transfusion was advised and broad spectrum antibiotic given intravenously. Still searching for underlying inflammatory infection. Getting frustrated.

Non-fasting C-reactive protein (CRP) is 9, cholesterol 170, and glucose 89. I have elevated micro lipoproteins. Now taking acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), statin and omega-3 tablets. I am on DASH diet. Stress test is negative. Blood pressure average is 118/70. I lost 40 lb. 2 years ago and maintaining my weight loss. I have arthritis in my shoulders and some spinal degeneration.

I am a 65 year old male with hypothyroidism and also have had bouts with gout flare ups. My dad was 59 when he passed. He had worsening atherosclerotic plaque buildup in his body. Also my mom had later passed back in 2011 with congestive heart failure. I was reading an article once about how CRP or C-reactive protein can cause inflammation build up in the body. So, with the part about having inflammation build up, this test is not always mentioned or offered to a patient I don't know why not! Plus, with flare up with gout I am kind of reluctant to take too much medicines anyway because side effects can be worse than what you are treating something else with. I use turmeric and cinnamon regularly to keep inflammation at bay. I will follow up to what I find on Thursday or Friday. I just am one who wants to be proactive with my health.

My C-reactive protein was 175. It needed a dilution as it was so high. I work in a lab and tested my blood myself. I don't know why it is so high but it seems like it has gradually gotten higher and higher over the course of about 2 years.

My C-reactive protein is 75. I've had hives for 30 years but no allergies. Everyone just shrugs their shoulders. Cardiologist says my heart looks fine.

My C-reactive protein is 18.9, not sure if this is harmful.

Comment from: Ls, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: July 27

My C-reactive protein was 58 in June. I started prednisone and methotrexate and now, as of July 26, my number is 8. Thank goodness! Hope that means I will be okay. I do not understand these numbers except to say below 7 is normal.

I am a 59 years old male with recently diagnosed high C-reactive protein (CRP) level. I haven't consulted the doctor.
