Here is information about one of the tests. Dermatomyositis is an inflammatory disease, as are arthritis, lupus and so forth. This is a measurement of that in your blood. Your lab has a range based on their equipment. How does this fall in that range, 3.6?
C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
A C-reactive protein (CRP) test is a blood test that measures the amount of a protein called C-reactive protein in your blood. C-reactive protein measures general levels of inflammation in your body.
High levels of CRP are caused by infections and many long-term diseases. But a CRP test cannot show where the inflammation is located or what is causing it. Other tests are needed to find the cause and location of the inflammation.
This is from my online medical account with my health service. Will look up the other in awhile. K
