CRP count 31, occasional flu, diverticulus, Hb 12.4

I ve just received a CRP count of 31 after standard tests - I ve had flu on and off for the past three months or so (four times - lots of my friends in London have had the same) - and have had diverticulitis some years ago. I m 50 and a male - all the other tests came back fine except the haemoglobin count which was marginally down at 12.4. Should I be worried? The test is being retaken.

You have already taken the next logical step, which is to repeat the test.
However, if the Hb remains the same, a careful review of your "red cell indices" and/or a review of your peripheral blood film by an expert hematologist may be warranted.
Kind regards.
