In brief: Depends on cause

Elevated CRP usually indicates inflammation which may be due to infection or other causes of inflammation.
The underlying cause needs to be treated. High sensitivity CRP is generally measured to assess risk of heart disease and the elevated hscrp often come down with statin therapy. In any case you need to consult your doctor for the proper work-up and treatment.
