User :   still watinig
User :   It seems you have moved out of the chat window. Please log in back if you have medical queries.
User :   no no i am still here
Doctor :   Single value of CRP raise has little importance when other lab tests are normal and the baby has no symptoms
Doctor :   Did the doctor tell you why he is investigating on
Doctor :   Moreover the CRP for the babies will be on rise
Doctor :   and the reference values for the baby are not yet available
Doctor :   hence do not compare with the reference values given by the lab
User :   so what is the bench mark for CRP
Doctor :   The reference values for the babies are not set
User :   so what i suppose if other tests seems good
Doctor :   It is very difficult to interpret the CRP values alone when all other values are normal and the baby is just doing fine
Doctor :   CRP per se just donotes that there is an ongoing inflammation process but it not of importance when the CBC is normal
Doctor :   Are you with me?
