Inflammation: C reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of inflammation.

Inflammation: 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, the results suggest on-going inflammation but do not provide a clue to the cause of inflammation. It would require in-person investigation and you may need to consult a rheumatologist. ...Read more

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.

I had a c reactive protein blood test of 45 is this unusually high?

It is high: But remember this is very nonspecific for any type of inflammation. Infections, autoimmune diseases, cancers and other assorted problems can cause this. The is difficult to interpret without knowing more about why the test was done. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is it dangerous that when I do the reactivate protein serum blood test , the result always high. The last time , it was 8mg/l and before was 14mg/l?

C-reactive protein: I've watched this formerly-arcane old test gain new popularity. While it's probably a marker for many things, including sometimes an open atherosclerotic plaque somewhere, nobody's claiming that a level somewhat higher than other folks', esepcially if you seem young and healthy, is a sign of a life likely to be cut short or any need for treatment. Eager to hear from others. ...Read more

Any symptoms?: The difference between 3.7 and 3.5 is not clinically meaningful and if this is the only "abnormality" then you need not worry. ...Read more

Blood test protein ua 50 mg/dl. Is it too high?

Uric acid: There is generally no problem with an elevated uric acid level and no reason to treat, UNLESS a person has been diagnosed with Gout. In that case, medication would be given to keep the UA in a normal range. Otherwise, it does not need to be treated. ...Read more

Yes: A separate ionized calcium test is done if you have factors that increase or decrease total calcium levels. It is the ionized calcium that is the true measure of active calcium. It sounds like you are in good shape. No worries. ...Read more
