A 40-year-old male asked:
i've had a few tests run over the past year and each test my crp keeps rising a little, from 0 to now at 12.6 mg/l and bilirubin is now at 29.0 umol/l, a year ago it was 17 umol/l. i have a few bosniak 2f kidney cysts. could it be related? or liver?

Inflammation: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, rising CRP suggests inflammation and increase in bilirubin suggests liver involvement. However, it is not feasible to come to a diagnosis from this information
Wish you good health
