C-reactive protein (CRP) is a general measure of inflammation. Under 10.0 is generally healthy and under 3.0 is ideal. Higher numbers can indicate future cardiovascular problems. Before my IBD flare my CRP always measured below 1.0. At the height of my last flare my CRP measured 93.2. That is not a misprint.
My normal pulse is 66-72 bpm. But when I was flaring it never got below 95 bpm for weeks at a time, even when first waking up in the morning. And my blood counts were so fouled up that I was referred to an oncologist to check for lymphoma.
But everything returned to normal very quickly after my flare ended. Blood counts are normal. My CRP is once again around 1.0 and my resting pulse rate is once again about
