This topic interests me as I deal with OA, damage from a hip replacement (2010) and just came out of a horrid bacterial staph knee infection (long terrible story).

Just looking at my last 3 yrs of CRP results and what a range:

2016 164.5 and now realize there was the infection going on. MD at the time never brought this to my attention with these results.

2017 1 which is an excellent result.

2018 3.85 high in the lab range of 1 to 3.

This is what one info site says:

If you haven't had this test done, not a bad idea if you believe you deal with inflammation in your body.
