Is it possible for C-reactive protein level to raise from 6 to 15.9 in 24 hours in my child, although there are no signs of sepsis?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of infection and inflammation anywhere in the body. It takes at least six hours for CRP to raise in the blood, once the infection starts and it continues to raise up to 24 hours at least.
Though there are no signs of infection clinically, that is, the child is well symptomatically, it is still possible that CRP raises.
