You need: You need to determine is causing the inflammation. If for example you smoke, we know that that can elevated a crp. If you overweight, that can cause a elevated crp. If you are pregnant , both can be elevated. Without knowing more of your history it is difficult to comment on what exactly to do. See your doctor to discuss further.
