Is barretts esophagus considered an inflamatory condition? Would having barrets with no displasia make CRP level high?

In brief: Probably not

This pathologist believes that people pay way too much attention to crp.
It's often up for no reason, and of course it's a marker for atherosclerosis along with dozens of others. Neither sensitive nor specific for anything, it's not worth troubling yourself over.

In brief: Yes it is Inflammato

It is a type of chronic inflammation caused by chronic irritation.
I suppose it can cause the CRP to go up. I would not have done CRP test as it is not a test that helps, yet it can create a lot of anxiety!
