The C-Reactive Protein (CRP) level is a blood-test marker that increases when there is inflammation in the body. Inflammation is the body’s way of protecting itself from injury or infection. Inflammation can present itself in several ways, including pain, redness, and swelling.

Some autoimmune disorders and chronic diseases, including coronary artery disease, inflammatory bowel disease, some cancers, tuberculosis and rheumatoid arthritis, can also cause inflammation.

When inflammation happens, the liver secretes C-Reactive Protein, meaning higher levels of C-Reactive Protein can indicate the presence of an infection or other disorders. A higher level of the C-Reactive Protein may also be due to the patient being pregnant or using birth control pills.

A C-Reactive Protein test may also be conducted to confirm whether or not the anti-inflammatory medication is working for the patient.

As the C-Reactive Protein blood test doesn’t identify the cause or location of the inflammation, additional tests may need to be ordered. Lifestyle factors that can elevate C-Reactive Protein levels include cigarette smoking, obesity, and a lack of exercise.

Because your CRP level can often fluctuate, the blood test should be done two times and two weeks apart to determine your risk of heart disease. Patients should remember that a high reading may not necessarily indicate heart disease or any primary concern.

The C-Reactive Protein test is a simple blood test with very few side effects or risks. The test requires no preparation; however, some medications may affect the test, so please ensure your phlebotomist is aware of any medications you are on before the test is administered.
