Doctors use this test to check for infection, inflammation.
A C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Quantitative test is used to aid in the diagnosis of infections or diseases which cause inflammation. CRP is a protein produced by the liver. Higher than normal concentrations of CRP are often an indicator of infection or inflammation in the body. This test can help determine if an infection is present but not the source of the infection. Condition which can cause elevated CRP levels include but are not limited to Sepsis, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Arthritis, Lupus, Vasculitis, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
C-Reactive protein levels are often higher in people who have recently had a heart attack. This test may be used to help determine if a person has had a recent cardiac event.
No special preparation is required.
