Depends on units: I'm going to assume this is mg/L. If so, you're fine. I would also urge you to stop worrying about lab tests unless they really are key health issues, which CRP is not. It's one of maybe a dozen putative markers for atherosclerosis risk, and one about which you can do nothing. You're probably smart enough to eat sensibly, stay physically fit, avoid smoking, and take Rx's you need.
