Just got my results from doctor and Cardio Crp is elevated. Can anyone tell me what this means? The nurse who called results to me could not. Why do they call us with results if they can not answer our questions?
 
I have researched the net and everything I found talks about inflammation, so now I am twice as confused as I was. HELP!

Hi Flopsie, it's great to see you again! tongue
 
I have a couple of articles here on CRP, you are not alone!  There are actually 2 different tests on this. 
 
The 2nd test is Heart Sensitivity CRP 
 
Hugs, Teri tongue
 
"A high or increasing amount of CRP in your blood suggests that you have an acute infection or inflammation. In a healthy person, CRP is usually less than 10 mg/L. Most infections and inflammations result in CRP levels above 100 mg/L.
If the CRP level in your blood drops, it means that you are getting better and inflammation is being reduced.
When your results fall below 10 mg/L, you no longer have clinically active inflammation.
NOTE: A standard reference range is not available for this test."
 
Hs-CRP

Less than 1.0 mg/L

Lowest risk

1.0 to 3.0 mg/L

Average risk

Greater than 3.0 mg/L

Highest risk

   I think that the nurses are just forbidden to give advice or make diagnosis and therefore refuse anything beyond merely reporting the test results..
   One time I was taking a drug to stop my body from producing testosterone..Later I had a blood test as part of a life insurance screening and I had some very elevated numbers on my liver function..I went to my family doctor and we discussed it and we decided that I would stop taking the drug and come back in a month and take a new blood test and see if my results changed then we would know it was my medication causing the elevated readings and proceed from there..Well I came back in the month and paid for the blood test out of my own pocket and a week later called up to get the test results..The nurse refused to even tell me what the test results were or say if the reading had gone down!..She said I had to come in so the doctor could treat me.
