What does a high level of crp tell a doc about lupus? I tried to look it up, but didn't find anything really or not the answer I was looking for. Just said it's a sign of a flare. Any more info on it? Thanks

Hi Erin :)

It's pretty non specific but yes can be a sign of inflammation or infection. Do you have Rheumatoid Arthritis? It's indicative for a flare in that, actually with Lupus the CRP is often normal.

Love

My CRP is typically always normal even when I do feel like CR$P!!!:lol:

My spinal fluid can be very high in protein, indicative of inflammation yet my CRP is normal.............go figure???:eek:

Hiya... yep my CRP is generally ok.. apart from when I got hospitalised!! But I don't always feel ok, when bloods are all 'normal'..... it is an inflammatory marker.... but not a marker to how you are feeling necessarily....:lol:
