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 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

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

See rheumatologist: I presume that you have some joint symptoms and thus the tests were obtained. However the diagnosed of RA is based on clinical findings supported by lab study and there is another test more specific than RA factor. Consult a rheumatologist. ...Read more

My results were 11.7, and negative for anti bodies and 1.6 for c-reactive protein. sedimentation a 3. what does it mean?

So far, so good.: The CRP level and sed rate are normal. The tests for antibodies probably were a search for certain forms or arthritis or kidney disease that are associated with the presence ofspecific antibodies in the blood. Those are all good news. The 11.7 may be your hemoglobin level or your white blood count. The next step by your doctor depends on 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
