Inflammation Present In Blood Tests

Inflammation Present In Blood Tests

Has anyone had inflammation above normal range in their blood test and did they tell you what was causing it?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I have to ask. Sometimes I even ask for a copy. That's how I found out there was inflammation in the first place. I asked for a coup and saw that it was outside the normal range and he hadn't mentioned it to me. I had another blood test months later and I asked him at my follow up appointment if my inflammation was still high. He looked at the report and said that yes it was, perhaps we should refer you back to the Rheumatologist.

Losing weight has nothing to do with your inflammation markers being up, small people have inflammation markers up, go see a Rhematologist

Sometimes a high level of inflammation can mean that you have an autoimmune disease like Lupus but a lot of general practitioners don't know about that, so it's definitely worth looking into it, especially with a rheumatologist.
