Do you need a CRP blood test? Are you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, chills, rapid breathing, rapid heart rate or nausea? This test conducted at our walk-in clinic is used to detect and monitor inflammation from conditions such as infections and autoimmune disease, to monitor flare-ups, and to evaluate chronic inflammatory disease treatments. The inflammation screen looks for C-Reactive Protein (CRP) which is a protein secreted by the liver that is used as an inflammatory marker to understand if inflammation is occurring in the body and inform further tests and treatment options. If you are experiencing these symptoms then this test could be right for you.

What can an inflammation test show?

Our inflammation test can be used to assess a range of potential conditions and diseases, it can also be provided on the basis to monitor those who have had surgery to check for infection during the recovery period, these can include:

  • Autoimmune disease
  • Bacterial infection (Sepsis)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Fungal infections
  • Forms of arthritis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

What is being tested?

Liver produces C-reactive protein, an acute phase reactant, and releases it into the blood at the start of an infection or inflammation, increased concentrations of CRP can be discovered after sepsis, surgery, or a heart attack.

When should a test be taken?

CRP tests are often requested if you are showing symptoms of a serious bacterial infection such as fever, chills, rapid breathing or a rapid heart rate, nausea, and vomiting.
