CRP is a general marker of inflammation. It is an acute phase reactant, a protein made by the liver and released into the blood immediately after tissue injury, infection or inflammation. The test is used to detect or monitor acute or chronic inflammatory conditions and to detect flare ups or to see if the treatment for a condition is effective.
Test is performed on a blood sample. No preparation is needed. Inform your doctor about all the medicines, vitamins, nutritional supplements, herbal or ayurvedic preparations, and homeopathic medicines you are taking
