What Is C-Reactive Protein (CRP)?
CRP is a protein produced in the liver. It is released into the bloodstream in response to inflammation because of infections, tissue injury or any other disease conditions. High levels of CRP in the blood show injury/inflammation within the body.
Why this CRP test is performed?
This test is used to determine inflammation in the body. Your doctor may ask to perform this test in case of serious bacterial or fungal infections, bone infection, pelvic inflammatory disease, or if you have inflammatory bowel disease, an autoimmune disorder such as lupus, or any inflammatory disorders such as arthritis, etc.
This test may also be performed to monitor the response in individuals receiving treatment for inflammatory disorders. Sometimes your doctor may advise you to perform this test along with an Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) test to detect inflammation. However, this test is not a general marker for inflammation or infection. Your doctor may ask you to perform other tests along with this test to rule out the exact cause for the inflammation.
How often CRP test is performed?
The individuals who are diagnosed with an inflammatory disorder such as arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, or inflammatory bowel disease may have to perform this test regularly or as instructed by the doctor.
