C Reactive Protein And High Triglycerides
I got my lab results back. My calcium,triglyceride,wbc and c- reactive protein was high. And i tested positivefor Mycoplasma. What couldcause this?
Lab data: These values are meaningless without clinical correlation. In addition, without knowing what the actual values for each of these elements were it is impossible to comment on them. For instance, "positive for Mycoplasma" has no value unless we know what was positive (particular test and values) ...Read more
are crucially important, energy-dense, poorly-water-soluble molecules made of 3 fat molecules attached to a glycerol backbone. They are made by all animals, including humans http://goo.gl/H7mItd, mostly in the liver, as a way of storing energy & transported within fat carrying proteins (lipoproteins).

Hold on!: Hs-c-reactive protein is a marker associated with vascular inflammation and is a risk factor for coronary heart disease. Proof of causality, though, is a bit more problematic, though intriguing: google "jupiter trial". All statins lower hs-crp to some degree, but also independently reduce cardiovascular risk, so separating out the impact of lowering CRP alone is difficult & remains controversial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I don't think so: As a pathologist, I don't believe that working up an isolated mildly-elevated C-reactive protein value in the absence of other evidence of atherosclerosis risk ever saved a life or made anybody healthier. Many healthy folks run high just on normal biological variability. You might take a stress test, but nobody's going to give you an angiogram or surgery. It's just one piece of information. ...Read more
My c reactive protein high 29.9....what can I do to lower that no. What supplements or medications help...thanks?
For a 35 c-reactive protein count and high neutrophils together, could that indicate any type of illness or disease?
Yes: Likely some type of inflamation, causes are many. ...Read more
Had C-reactive protein blood test. It shows my level is 1.55 ( normal is anything under .80). Is mine considered really high??
Depends: 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. Having said that, you did not provide the units of the result, however, it does not seem too high. See this site for more information on this topic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/c-reactive-protein/basics/definition/PRC-20014480 ...Read more
C reactive protein really high 61.7mg/l. normal range should be >.05. what is this caused from. also high ddimer. im so scared.
See below: 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. Having said that, the information you provided suggests inflammation, not necessarily infection. It is not feasible to provide a more meaningful opinion without examining you and you should consult the doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more
Blood rest results came back showing a high c-reactive protein of 39.96...How is this possible? What could it mean? What should I do next?
Inflammation: Elevated CRP is an indication of inflammation. Your doctor who ordered the test would have more information; all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context. See this site for more information, and discuss the matter with your doctor. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/c-reactive-protein-crp. ...Read more
Does a high c reactive protein level mess with your metabolosm? I eat between 800 & 1000 calories/day and exercise 4 days /week and gain weight.
May be other causes: Are you also suffering from fatigue, heat/cold intolerance, skin changes, etc. If yes to any of these, you may want to ask your doctor to check your thyroid function or look for other causes. The CRP measures inflammation and may be indicative, not the cause, of other issues. ...Read more
C-Reactive Protein is high at 8.4 mg/L (range 0.0 - 4.9). Does this require follow-up or is it not high enough to warrant concern? No infections.
Need evaluation: Elevated C-reactive protein is one of the markers for risk of heart disease. You may wish to consult a cardiologist for an evaluation. ...Read more
Ask your doctor: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a non-specific test. It is used by a doctor to detect inflammation if there is a high suspicion of tissue injury or infection somewhere in the body, but the test cannot tell where the inflammation is or what condition is causing it. Unfortunately, CRP values are best interpreted by the lab paperwork that is sent to your doctor. Best to f/u with him/her. ...Read more
CRP: This is a very non-specific measure of inflammation and is a worthless test unless applied to a specific clinical syndrome. It can only be of value in concert with the history, physical exam and other testing. The value of 4 is actually not very high and could be due to virtually anything. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe: Depending on which antibody for anticardiolipin and which lab that value may fall into the indeterminate range and not really be an issue. The c- reactive protein can be elevated with acute infection or chronic inflammation. The elevated calcium deserves repeat testing with some additional labs to evaluate the parathyroid glands. You need the help of your medical provider to sort out the relevance. ...Read more
Yes: The importance of CRP is on your medical history. CRP is not for diagnosis, is a test/tool that helps us in your evaluation. Talk to your doctor or cardiologist. ...Read more
