Description

In severe cases of inflammation, c-reactive protein increases. Therefore, CRP tests are ordered when a risk of acute inflammation (from an infection after surgery for example) is present, or suspected based on symptoms. This blood test can also be ordered to help evaluate conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and it is often repeated to determine whether treatment is effective (this is helpful for inflammation problems since CRP levels drop as inflammation subsides). CRP blood tests can additionally be used as an early detection system for possible infections in patients who have healing wounds, burns, surgical cuts or incisions, or who have just had an organ transplant.
