I got my lab results back. My calcium,triglyceride,wbc and c- reactive protein was high. And i tested positivefor Mycoplasma. What couldcause this?

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

Triglyceride (Definition)

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). Production & storage ↑es on sugar/carbohydrate LFHC foods driving ↑ LDL-P & ...Read more

What is the treatment for high c-reactive protein?

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

It is high: But remember this is very nonspecific for any type of inflammation. Infections, autoimmune diseases, cancers and other assorted problems can cause this. The is difficult to interpret without knowing more about why the test was done. Hope this helps. ...Read more

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

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.

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

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

My c-reactive protein, quant  is 6.0 high, what does that mean?

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

What might a high C reactive protein result mean? Mine is close to 4.

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 more

Connection between high calcium and antcardiolipin and high c-reactive protein?

Connection between high calcium and antcardiolipin and high c-reactive protein?

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
