C-Reactive protein(CRP) test is performed to analyse the level of c-reactive protein in the blood. It is a protein produced by the liver. High level of CRP level indicates some serious disorder and infections. During inflammation and infection the level of c-reactive protein increases. Increased level of CRP means that the person might have a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.
C-Reactive protein test monitors conditions like:
1. Bacterial infection.
2. An autoimmune disorder such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
4. Fungal infection.
Symptoms of bacterial infection are:
1. Rapid breathing.
2. Rapid heartbeat.
4. Nausea and vomiting.
C-reactive protein level is directly related to inflammation. If the level increases, it means you have serious inflammation while the decrease in level indicates treatment is working. CRP test does not explain the cause of the inflammation. So, the doctor will take some more test to know the cause. There are some other factors which can increase your CRP level. Those factors are obesity, lack of exercise, or smoking cigarettes.
