Would CRP be high with rheumatoid arthritis?

See below. Yes it would if it is active but it can also be elevated in other conditions such as infections.
As a rule no. But if you take immunosuppresive drugs for your rheumatoid arthritis it can make you more prone to infection (which can elevate your crp). Cardiovascular disease can see elevated CRP levels. Talk to your doctor as to why your CRP is elevated. Good luck.
