Can CRP as as low as 0.18 too much of a good thing? I mean, how low is too low?

I was at the doctor this week and I had a CRP test and the results were 2 (i have had flu/cold symptoms for a month). I told him that was a lot higher than my last test which was <1. He said anything under 10 is fine, it starts to become a... (more)

Maybe you are eating a new food to which you are having a reaction? For example, are you suddenly eating lots of eggs? Mike

Japsican 0 · November 24, 2011 at 11:25 PM

ESR levels can be different from CRP in that it is a less specific marker of one's inflammatory condition as NON-inflammatory conditions like anemia, pregnancy, menstration, diet changes and medications can affect ESR. Also, ESR is slower to... (more)

If you were going to get a blood test to measure inflammation would you choose Interleukin 6 or CRP and why?

Generally speaking, you want both and more. If you want to gauge the state of inflammation in your body (as opposed to get a number and trust in it), you'd do better to get as many data points as you can -- measure your CRP, get a cytokine panel,... (more)
