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
Fats from animal products contain these molecules which are made of three fat chains attached to a molecule called glycerol. They circulate in the blood stream and are used as building blocks and repair materials by your cells. Too many of them can contribute to plaque build ...Read more
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

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.
