CRP is an acute phase reactant - marker of inflammation.
It points to the presence of inflammation - but not the place.
Raising level is a pointer to search for a cause.
The level (like ESR
) is useful in following up of the illness -
She may be having peptic ulcer
, Inflammatory or Irritable Bowel Syndrome
. You are already seeing a Gastro enterologist - he is the proper person to investigate and treat. She will need upper and lower GI endoscopy
- for favour of further assessment and assistance. There are a battery of tests, depending on the results of the preliminary tests
Wishing her speedy recovery
