Anyone Had C Reactive Protein Test ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My mom has been gluten free for 2 years and 3 months now, her follow up antibody test returned to normal after 9 months of diagnosis and she has a follow up endoscopy scheduled in two months to check if her intestine has healed. My mom had silent celiac so its difficult to tell if she has healed through her symptoms.

She recently has a routine blood work and her hs crp (high sensitivity c reactive protein) was 3.1. A couple of months ago it was 1.7. Has anyone had a hs crp test after celiac diagnosis ? The increase in number i have read maybe caused by inflammation anywhere in the body. I am worried that it is from her intestine and perhaps she didnt heal yet.

Yes, I get  this done  yearly,  I  do  both  tests.. One  checks  on  heart  function  & the other  for  body inflammation...  Mine  run  high for  inflammation....I'm not a  doctor  but  I was  told  the  high  sensitive  one  is  for  heart but  I never  researched  it  as  mine  was  fine  but  the  regular  Crp   is  always  on the  high  side...

Thank you for your response. You are absolutely right hs crp is a marker for risk of heart disease as well in addition to being influenced by inflammation. So my moms elevation could be heart or inflammation related. If you dont mind, what were your numbers on the test ?
