For instance, "positive for Mycoplasma" has no value unless we know what was positive (particular test and values) ...Read more

What is the treatment for high c-reactive protein?

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 more

C reactive protein is 29.9.(high)...do I need to see a cardiologist..??

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

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.
