No: That is an elevated crp. You should get evaluated for an arthritic condition or some other inflammatory condition.

No it is high : It is high and it can be high due to inflammation in any part of body.There is a more sensitive CRP test called high sensitivity c reactive protein(hs -c reactive)assay which determines the persons high risk for heart disease.Discuss with your doctor which test was ordered for you.You are 78 years old and if it is high sensitivity test you should be on Aspirin and/or statins.But we can not recomme.

Is where I work: You should get information with the test value that gives you the normal range for a given test at a specific lab--they can vary depending on test methods used. However, that is a relatively low #, so would be normal with the ranges I work with. Can always ask the ordering provider if concerned.
