Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us with your health query.
A CRP value is a non specific test.
It just indicates that there is a likelihood of some infection somewhere in the body, it does not pinpoint any particular disease.
Normally it is less than 10, so 10.4 is considered normal.
To give you a proper opinion whether you should take Zifi or not, please upload your wife's urine test reports.
That would tell me if there is an actual infection for which the medication should be taken.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Take care.
