Many Questions: CRP is an inflammatory marker which is not specific to any one cause. The elevation could be from infection or even a reaction to various drugs. To normalize would require you to determine the cause of the elevation and treat that issue specifically. An infectious disease specialist or rheumatologist might be the best way to find the answer to your question.
