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?

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.

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 more

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?

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 a the implication is chronically elevated Complement 3 and 4 and elevated IGE? Plaquenil has lowered SED rate and C reactive protein.

What is a the implication is chronically elevated Complement 3 and 4 and elevated IGE?  Plaquenil has lowered SED rate and C reactive protein.

Infection?: If you are being treated for lupus, a normal C3 is a good thing. However when it is elevated, infection may be the cause. If the IgE is only mildly elevated, it may be from something else such as allergies. But it is highly elevated, one will need to rule out other medical conditions. We really need more details re. your symptoms. ...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?

What is implication homogeneous ANA 1:320, compliment 4 high 44, sed rate and c-reactive protein often elevated and vitamin d low?

Several causes: The vitamin d is probably a seperate problem and should be treated by a supplement. The other lab you reported can be a sign of an autoimmune disease as well as many other diseases. You should discuss the cause with your doctor. ...Read more

What is wrong. my Sedimentation rate is 58.0 an my c reactive protein is 3.6?

What is wrong. my Sedimentation rate is 58.0 an my c reactive protein is 3.6?

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 more

I realise that these markers aren't specific but wouldn't most advanced cancers cause elevated Sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein?

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

22 year old female c reactive protein is 19.2, sedimentation rate is 65. Been having bad lower back/kidney pain. Could something be wrong?

22 year old female c reactive protein is 19.2, sedimentation rate is 65. Been having bad lower back/kidney pain. Could something be wrong?

Something IS wrong: Both c-reactive protein and sed rate are non-specific measures of inflammation. The 2 most likely causes of this are infection & auto-immune issues like arthritis. It could be as simple as a kidney infection or as complex as something like lupus. At this point you need further testing to determine the cause. See a good family doctor or internist, preferably one with a holistic approach. Take care. ...Read more

Inflammation: You are anemic and have inflammation. Check 25-oh vit d level. Anemia could be due to iron deficiency if having heavy periods. That can make you more toxic to cadmium a pollutant that is activated by stress and increases cr-protein. Improve health with healthy food, supplements to prevent deficiency, a good night sleep, mild exercise through the day, and de-stress. See kelly mcgonigal's book. ...Read more

?: Need to compare to previous readings, looks like those numbers are coming down, regardless, please keep the follow up with your treating physicians, hopefully you will get well soon, what counts more is how you look like clinically, as we treat patients not lab results, wish you wellness ...Read more

Possible to have an autoimmune disease w/ very low C-reactive protein & ESR/SED rate? ANA is negative, but doc said he thinks I have something autoimmune going on. I always thought autoimmune diseases were inherently inflammatory in nature?

Possible to have an autoimmune disease w/ very low C-reactive protein & ESR/SED rate? ANA is negative, but doc said he thinks I have something autoimmune going on. I always thought autoimmune diseases were inherently inflammatory in nature?

Yes and No: You are correct that we lump autoimmune and inflammation together. The problem with autoimmune labs is they can change almost day to day. There are certainly more tests then an ANA that can be positive even in light of a negative ANA. A good history and physical exam are more important then labs even though labs and xrays can be helpful and supportive of a diagnosis. Your doctor may be correct ...Read more

Lab informed me my C reactive protien is 2.9 and my sed rate rose from 8 to 17. Are these normal levels?

Lab informed me my C reactive protien is 2.9 and my sed rate rose from 8 to 17. Are these normal levels?

Sed rate okay: 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, Your sed rate will vary with the menstrual cycle and is normal. CRP levels depends on the units. If it was high sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) it is higher than desirable.
