Normal Sedimentation Rate And C Reactive Protein
I just had a blood test for rheumatoid. Is 0.290ml for a c-reactive protein? And my sed rate is 29mm is this normal please help?
Likely normal: If you CRP is 0.29mg/L it is normal. Your sed rate is normal. You may consult this site for more information on CRP: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/c-reactive-protein/basics/definition/prc-20014480 ...Read more
What is apca blood test when checking for ra? My sed rate rheu factor and c reactive protein are all normal. I have stiff fingers and swollen tendons like trigger fingers in am.
Best RA test: Anti-citrullinated protein antibody. Probably my typographical error -- acpa is considered by many to be more sensitive and more specific for rheumatoid arthritis than any of the old classic tests you have listed. So is anti-cyclic citrullinated protein. Your physician is familiar with these. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My c reactive protein was 4.5 (0 to 5) and my sed rate was 25 (0 to 20) what can I do to reduce inflammation?
Find the source!: Inflammation increases risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, neuro-degenerative disease & accelerates the aging process. The big question is what is the source of the inflammation? It can be related to autoimmune disease like arthritis but also is often caused by chronic low-grade infections such as sinusitis & dental infections/periodontitis. Diet can also influence inflammation. See comment:. ...Read more
What is implication homogeneous ANA 1:320, compliment 4 high 44, sed rate and c-reactive protein often elevated and vitamin d low?
I've been taking plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) for UCTD. Could it have lowered C-reactive protein, sed rate and decreased fatigue after 3 months?
What can cause multiple joint pain, fatigue, sore and tight muscles. Neg. Lupus, sed rate, and c-reactive protein. Wbc sometimes hi sometimes lo?
More info needed: I'd like to help, but there are at least a hundred separate medical conditions that could cause these lab test abnormalities. It's not unlike asking the cause of a fever. The likely causes will depend on other symptoms, physical exam by a health professional, and other lab tests. If you're not under a doctor's care, call for an appointment ASAP. Some of the possible causes are serious. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I realise that these markers aren't specific but wouldn't most advanced cancers cause elevated Sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein?
No: Nice to be able to help once again, Matt. The sed rate and especially the C-reactive protein result from the liver pumping out extra large amounts of a couple of particular proteins that are stimulated by very particular things that are often produced in inflammation and seldom in pure neoplasia. Forget most (not all) of what you've read about "immune response to cancer" as myth. Best wishes. ...Read more
What does c reactive protein rxl <0.3 with a sedimentation rate of 6 usually indicate, the person is already showing signs of an auto immune disorder?
Normal: These values are normal and cannot be interpreted even if they were abnormal without placing them in the context of clinical presentation. ...Read more
