I have hemroging cysts on both ovaries. Pain in ab and back. I am nauseated, bloated, tired and thirsty. The only test I have right now is c reactive protein is high at 4.8. can that mean infection? Can cysts cause infection without a fever?
Need to examine:
Ovarian cysts may not be the explanation for your symptoms, however, it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and you should consult a doctor.

I had a blood test and the results said I have high c reactive protein, I have to have more blood tests. What does this mean?
Inflammation: C reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of inflammation.

How accurate is regular c-reactive protein test vs. High sensitivity CRP in determining heart disease risk? I was given regular test not sensitive.
Yes: U need cardio-crp to be cardiac specific! ...Read more
Inflammation: The c reactive protein is being used as a non-specific measure of inflammation in the body. So if you have a systemic problem like rheumatoid arthritis, the CRP can be high. Some studies correlate high CRP with an increased risk of heart disease, so it is a good idea to discuss this result and put it in the context of your overall health and risks for disease. ...Read more
Ask your doctor: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a non-specific test. It is used by a doctor to detect inflammation if there is a high suspicion of tissue injury or infection somewhere in the body, but the test cannot tell where the inflammation is or what condition is causing it. Unfortunately, CRP values are best interpreted by the lab paperwork that is sent to your doctor. Best to f/u with him/her. ...Read more
CRP: This is a very non-specific measure of inflammation and is a worthless test unless applied to a specific clinical syndrome. It can only be of value in concert with the history, physical exam and other testing. The value of 4 is actually not very high and could be due to virtually anything. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had C-reactive protein blood test. It shows my level is 1.55 ( normal is anything under .80). Is mine considered really high??
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.

Complex: We start treatment on our infants who have fever or the mother has an infection/fever. There are supporting tests (complete blood count and c-reactive protein) that may support but not prove infection. The gold standard is the blood culture that takes 48 hrs to come back (+ or -). Regardless of all that the physician must make a clinical decision about how long to treat the infantbased on these &. ...Read more
I've had a high c reactive protein for a year. I've had facial flushing and joint pain. Negative Ana test. What could this be ?
I'm 65 years old, with heart disease in family history. What benefit from the high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hs-crp) test in physical exam?
CRP test for hearts: Most experts agree that testing for highly sensitive CRP does not add much to the traditional assessment of cardiac risk factors. The main factors to pay attention to (in addition) to the family history are exercise, diet, blood pressure, cholesterol, daily aspirin, not smoking, relaxation, maintaining weight. The value for CRP has been for low risk patients with relatively low cholesterol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I got my lab results back. My calcium,triglyceride,wbc and c- reactive protein was high. And i tested positivefor Mycoplasma. What couldcause this?
Lab data: These values are meaningless without clinical correlation. In addition, without knowing what the actual values for each of these elements were it is impossible to comment on them. For instance, "positive for Mycoplasma" has no value unless we know what was positive (particular test and values) ...Read more
