What is CRP?
What is the difference between crp and hs-crp?
This link provides an excellent answer, here is the text except that explains that. http://www.labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/crp/faq.html#2 Common Questions ---- 1. What are chronic inflammatory diseases? 2. What is the difference between regular CRP and hs-CRP tests? 1. What are chronic inflammatory diseases? "Chronic inflammatory diseases" is a non-specific term used to characterize long-lasting or frequently recurring bouts of inflammation as associated with a more specific disease. This can be caused by a number of different pathological conditions such as arthritis, lupus, or inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease). 2. What is the difference between regular CRP and hs-CRP tests? Both tests measure the same molecule in the blood. The high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) test measures very small amounts of CRP in the blood and is ordered most frequently for seemingly healthy people to assess their potential risk for heart problems. It measures CRP in the range from 0.5 to 10 mg/L. The regular CRP test is ordered for patients at risk for infections or chronic inflammatory diseases (see Question #1). It measures CRP in the range from 10 to 1000 mg/L.

Is 10 kt crp real gold?
"10kt CRP" means that your item is 10 karat gold. The CRP doesn't mean much. It is the manufacturers mark and identifies who made it, which does not affect the value by much nor does it identify the metal quality. I have identified CRP as a jewellery making company in Thailand. The best way to test the metal quality is to visit a jeweller who can perform a test on it.

What is c reactive protein CRP Quantitative?
C-Reactive Protein, "CRP Quantitative" is an acute phase reactant, this is used to test for infections as well as for inflammatory and neoplastic diseases. Progressive increases correlate with increases of inflammation/injury. CRP can be used to detect early postoperative wound infection and also to follow therapeutic responses to anti inflammatory agents.To find out more about What is a normal range for c reactive protein CRP Quantitative Go to the related (The distribution of CRP values in a "Normal Healthy Population) link below

Decrease in CRP count it was 68 now 38?
This is difficult to answer without knowing other details and blood results. CRP is an infection marker. It is raised if you have an infection. 68 is only a mildly elevated CRP and it has further decreased to 38 which indicates that the infection is healing. If there are no other clinical signs of infection, I would not worry.

What is a C-reactive protein quantitative?
C-Reactive Protein, Quantitative C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein your liver produces as part of your immune system response to injury or infection. It's also produced by muscle cells in the coronary arteries. CRP may be used to detect early postoperative wound infection and to follow therapeutic response to anti-inflammatory agents. CRP is a marker for inflammation somewhere in the body. However, CRP tests can't pinpoint where in the body inflammation may be occurring. Inflammation plays a central role in the process of atherosclerosis, in which fatty deposits clog your arteries. While measuring CRP alone won't tell your doctor your risk of heart disease, factoring in CRP test results with other blood tests results and risk factors for heart disease helps create an overall picture of your heart health. High levels of CRP in your blood may be associated with an increased risk of heart attack and sudden cardiac death. High levels of CRP appear to be less useful in predicting your risk of a stroke. The American Heart Association doesn't yet recommend CRP screening for the general public, only those at known risk of heart disease. Recent research indicates CRP testing isn't much better at predicting your heart disease risk than is assessing traditional risk factors, such as high cholesterol, obesity and smoking. Cholesterol-lowering statin medications may reduce CRP levels and decrease your cardiovascular risk.

Asked in Medical Terminology
What does the medical abbreviation crp mean?
C-reactive protein is a plasma (blood) protein that rises with the inflammation from certain conditions. (CRP) is one of the plasma proteins known as acute- phase proteins: proteins whose plasma concentrations increase or decrease by 25% or more during inflammatory disorders. CRP can rise as high as 1000-fold with inflammation. Conditions that commonly lead to marked changes in CRP include infection, trauma or surgery. C-reactive protein
