So far, so good.: The CRP level and sed rate are normal. The tests for antibodies probably were a search for certain forms or arthritis or kidney disease that are associated with the presence ofspecific antibodies in the blood. Those are all good news. The 11.7 may be your hemoglobin level or your white blood count. The next step by your doctor depends on your symptoms
