c reactive protein
Jan 22, 2006

Hello

Thanks in advance. Can you tell me what the relevance of a C-Reactive protein of 17 (normal range 0-7) is to someone with HepB?

My DNA load is "HBVDNA detected PCR, HBVDNA <100 IU/ml"

is my HBVDNA high or low.

Thanks again

Response from Dr. McGovern

CRP is a very non-specific test that can be elevated in so many different situations that it is not usually very helpful diagnostically.
