Hello doctor,

In my routine blood check, the CRP value came up as 2.61. Is this harmful? The lipid profile is as per nominal value. I am attaching the reports.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • I find that your MCV (mean corpuscular volume) is raised, and SGOT (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase) are slightly raised and CRP as well.
  • A raised CRP is suggestive of active inflammation somewhere in the body. A raised SGOT and SGPT can be due to fatty liver, while MCV is usually raised in vitamin B12 deficiency or in persons with a history of alcohol intake.
  • Do not worry much about CRP. Get an ultrasound done of the liver.
  • If the report is suggestive of a fatty liver, then you need to have a low-sugar and low-fat diet. Also, cut down on alcohol if you drink.
  • If you do not have any pains or aches in any part of the body, then CRP is not much of a value.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Take Zerodol MR (a combination of Aceclofenac and Tizanidine) once a day or five days. Do not take this for a long time and without your doctor's consent.
