What is a c-reactive protein (CRP) test?

A c-reactive protein test measures the level of c-reactive protein (CRP) in your blood. CRP is a protein made by your liver. It's sent into your bloodstream in response to inflammation. Normally, you have low levels of c-reactive protein in your blood. High levels may be sign of a serious infection or other disorder.

What is it used for?

A CRP test may be used to find or monitor conditions that cause inflammation. It is recommended by healthcare professionals, especially during COVID or other allied symptoms.

Why do I need a CRP test?

You may need this test if you have symptoms of a serious bacterial infection. Symptoms include:

Fever

Chills

Rapid breathing

Rapid heart rate

Nausea and vomiting

If you've already been diagnosed with an infection or have a chronic disease, this test may be used to monitor your treatment.

 Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?

What do the results mean?

If your results show a high level of CRP, it probably means you have some type of inflammation in your body. A CRP test doesn't explain the cause or location of the inflammation. A higher than normal CRP level does not necessarily mean you have a medical condition needing treatment. There are other factors that can raise your CRP levels. These include cigarette smoking, obesity, and lack of exercise.
