Understanding C-reactive Protein Level

Understanding C-reactive Protein Level

This test basically shows an increase in the C-reactive protein when inflammation is present, but it doesn't tell what the inflammation is for. It could be linked to other medical conditions like coronary heart disease, diabetes, or cancer. How do I know that I'm treating the issue & not just an underlying symptom?

SweetTB, it's a mystery! I have anemia of chronic inflammation according to c-reactive protein and other test results. I'm never sure I am being treated for the underlying cause of my symptoms. Frustrating!
