Lupus And Elevated C Reactive Protein Levels
Whatcauses high c-reactive protein ihave IBS andfamily history of lupus could either of these be the cause?
CRP: Is just a marker for inflammation whatever the cause.
Ana 1:80 speckled, RA 12, 70 ui/ml (normal <14ui/ml), C-reactive protein 2.mg/l, VDRL negative. I´m female and 35 years old. Could be lupus?
See below: What symptoms were you having that made your doctor order these tests?
Ana 1:80 speckled, RA 12, 70 ui/ml, C-reactive protein 2.mg/l, VDRL negative. White blood cels 4.000. Feeling tired, lost bit of weight. Could be lupus?
The doctor is checking me for lupus. First my C-reactive protein was high and my antinuclear antibodies was positive. So more blood work and urine. No?
No what?: I am sorry- I see a question mark but no question. Please resubmit and include a specific, clear question.See 1 more doctor answer
What can cause multiple joint pain, fatigue, sore and tight muscles. Neg. Lupus, sed rate, and c-reactive protein. Wbc sometimes hi sometimes lo?
? fibromyalgia: There are several issues that can cause these symptoms, fibromyalgia is one of them. Have a rheumatologist evaluated the issue.
Are C-reactive protein (CRP) and ESR levels typically elevated with advanced stage cancer such as stage 4 lymphoma?
No: These tests are neither sensitive nor specific for much. They generate enormous confusion and unnecessary fear. C-RP is made in atherosclerotic plaques and is often up in bad atherosclerosis. It's also made in the liver in response to some interleukins in disease elsewhere, especially some arthritis variants. Sed rate reflects globulins and fibrinogen, not usually up in lymphoma.
Any cause for..: Inflammation causes a rise in crp! arthritis, trauma, infection, and even certain metabolic diseases such as diabetes can do it as well. A high CRP is associated with cardiovascular and stroke disease risk, because inflammation releases chemical that damage the blood vessel lining. It is not the CRP doing damage, but it is the best surrogate marker for inflammation!
Why do I have a chronically elevated C reactive protein? I am afebrile, asymptomatic, eat a healthy anti inflammatory diet, have no dental disease.
Ignore it: I'm a pathologist and focused on the lab. Often, I wish we didn't even check CRP's. It's worthless except as an adjunct to the big picture. There's talk of it being a weak coronary risk factor -- but what are you going to do about it? Just live healthy. Plenty of people are in your situation -- we've just created one more thing to worry unnecessarily about. Manage your health & put it out of mind.
What does it mean if you are prone to getting kidney stones and have regularly elevated neutrophil counts and elevated c reactive protein?
You might have: A chronic kidney infection, so it is best to have a urologist take a look at your condition. Chronic kidney infections can lead to kidney failure.
Well, it is not bad.: The "crp" or c-reactive protein is a non-specific marker for inflammation or for infection. This is useful in toddlers to distinguish between a bacterial infection (elevated crp) or viral infection (rarely causes significant rise in CRP values). Zero is normal; however, a 2.2 is not bad. With my pneumonia last winter, my CRP was 27.9. So, talk this over with your pediatrician for better clarity.
Maybe nothing: This SGPT level, depending on the lab and your age, may not even be above the reference range. C-reactive protein often means nothing at all that anyone can figure out. How do you FEEL? Was you SGOT / AST up? Reference ranges are set, as you know, so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. There may not be any reason to be concerned. What did your physician say?
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
Possibly: CRP are elevated in a nonspecific manner. They can track infections and other inflammatory conditions. They can also elevate as a reaction like to a cancer. Screening should be done appropriate for your age. It is not necessary to look beyond screening without signs or symptoms. Ask your physician.See 1 more doctor answer
Is where I work: You should get information with the test value that gives you the normal range for a given test at a specific lab--they can vary depending on test methods used. However, that is a relatively low #, so would be normal with the ranges I work with. Can always ask the ordering provider if concerned.
