CRP Blood Test in Delhi

What is a CRP test?

The CRP test quantifies the amount of C reactive proteins in the blood. When there is inflammation or infection anywhere in the body, the body produces C reactive protein. The liver is the primary organ that releases the C reactive protein. This protein circulates in the bloodstream in reaction to an infection or injury. Excess CRP in the circulation may induce swelling and redness in the wounded or infected region.

The CRP test can also assist in determining the risk of developing heart disease, notably coronary artery disease, which can lead to a heart attack.

CRP has also been identified as a significant marker for Covid-19. 

An increased CRP level can be a sign of inflammation in the body. 

What causes an increased level of CRP in the blood?

The following are the most common reasons for increased CRP levels:

  • Persistent infections like tuberculosis or pneumonia
  • Some types of cancer
  • Fungal infection 
  • Sepsis or bacterial inflammation can also lead to life-threatening conditions if not appropriately diagnosed.
  • In case of burns or extreme shock
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Autoimmune conditions like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteomyelitis or infection of the bone
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Viral infection
  • COVID 19

A minor increase in CRP levels can also be caused by conditions such as obesity, diabetes, physical trauma, ageing, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity. It should not be interpreted as severe inflammation.

Why is the CRP test used?

Doctors often use CRP blood tests to detect and monitor disorders that might cause inflammatory reactions in the body. A doctor usually prescribes a CRP test if a person is experiencing inflammatory symptoms such as fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, rapid heartbeat, and breathing difficulties.

CRP is mainly used for:

  • Diagnosis of inflammation: A positive CRP test implies inflammation in the body. The test is often performed to confirm the presence of inflammation after observing the symptoms. Although CRP can detect the infection, it cannot pinpoint the exact cause behind that inflammation. Different tests are usually performed to confirm the cause and the site of the inflammation.
  • Predicting the risk of heart attacks: The hs-CRP test is widely used to determine underlying problems like coronary artery disease and a person's risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
  • Monitoring infection or inflammation: Changing CRP levels in the blood might indicate the severity of an infection or inflammation in the body. A persistently high and increasing level implies an escalating infection. While lot officers ye
  • Checking treatment efficacy: The CRP test can also reveal whether or not the therapy is effective in decreasing inflammation. In such cases, if CRP levels decrease, it suggests that the treatment for inflammation is working.
  • To determine the severity of covid 19: The CRP test can be used to detect the covid-19 viral infection in the body. The CRP blood test is a crucial measure for detecting the severity of covid-19 and can aid with proper monitoring.

What is the procedure for the CRP test in Delhi?

The CRP test is an easy and quick procedure that can be done in under 15 minutes.

  • A comprehensive CRP test is available at Redcliffe Labs. After you make the booking, blood samples will be collected from your residence by an expert phlebotomist.
  • The blood is drawn from a vein in the upper arm during the process.
  • The skin is initially sanitised and treated with an antiseptic; then an elasticated band is stretched around the arm to help visualise the veins. 
  • A sterile needle is then inserted into the vein, and the blood is collected in a sterilised vial.
  • After collecting the blood, it is firmly packaged, and the elastic band is removed from the arms. 
  • Pressure is applied on the insertion site to prevent bruising and excessive blood flow.

This blood sample is sent to the laboratory for evaluation and you can get your reports on the same day.

How to assess the results of my CRP test?

CRP levels are measured in milligrammes per litre (mg/l) of blood.

  • CRP levels in the normal range are less than 10 mg/litre.
  • A high CRP level is defined as a CRP level of more than 10 mg/litre.

A high level of CRP can be a sign of infection or injury in any chronic condition. Various other tests are often ordered in conjunction with CRP to determine the reason for the elevated levels. For more specific results, doctors use the following guide:

  • CRP levels of less than six mg/L (0.3 mg/dL): level usually observed in healthy people
  • From 3 to 10 mg/L (0.3 to 1.0 mg/dL): Normal to moderate inflammation ( This is slightly elevated but normal CRP levels. These levels are often seen in people who are obese, smokers, have diabetes, are pregnant, or have flu)
  • From 10 to 100 mg/L (1.0 to 10 mg/dL): such elevated levels indicate the presence of whole-body inflammation. It is generally seen in the case of autoimmune disease, bronchitis, heart attack, cancer, or pancreatitis.
  • More than 100 mg/L (10 mg/dL): constant high CRP levels indicate infection: bacterial, viral. It can also point towards systemic vasculitis or severe trauma.
  • More than 500 mg/L (50 mg/dL): these levels are observed in cases of severe bacterial infection in the body.

Another common type of CRP is a hs-CRP or high sensitivity CRP.

The High sensitivity CRP quantitative test in Delhi can be used to estimate the risk of heart disease.

  • A high sensitivity CRP level of less than 2 mg/litre implies a low risk of heart disease.
  • CRP levels that are more than or equal to 2.0 mg/litre might indicate that a person is at a higher risk of heart disease.

It is critical to understand that the levels of CRP is not the sole criterion for estimating coronary artery disease; various other assessments are necessary.

CRP results and Covid-19: 

According to several studies, the CRP normal range in the blood is less than 5 mg/L. However, multiple patients with covid-19 have a significantly high level of CRP ranging from 20 to 50 mg/litre.

Various studies have also indicated that individuals with severe COVID-19 infection had substantially higher CRP levels in their blood than people with milder COVID-19 infection.

A significantly elevated CRP level may indicate that the patients need hospitalisation and intensive therapy.

Depending on the diagnostic facility and equipment standards, it may cost more or less for a CRP test. Lab facilities, accreditations, and equipment availability are all factors that can affect the price.

While a lab with a highly regarded accreditation and FDA-approved equipment might be slightly more expensive, it will ensure a fast test procedure and accurate results.
