CRP Test

This test measures the level of C-reactive protein (CRP), a substance made by the liver in response to inflammation, which may indicate the presence of an illness, injury, or infection. Elevated CRP levels are associated with several diseases and conditions including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer. Inflammation is part of the body’s natural defense mechanism in response to injury, infection, or irritants to combat and fix the damage or effect.
