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 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
