CRP 0.30 (ref range 0.0-3.0)
My CRP in 2011 was 0.30 (ref range 0.0-3.0). I am worried that this is too high. Should I be concerned, my doc says it's normal and not to worry. I was tested for kindey, liver, ANA, autoimmune test, protein test, celiac disease, colonscopy, ct scan adonominal, cbc, metabolic and all were normal.

I had stress test, ekg, trophin and were normal as well too.

Not sure if I should be tested again. I do smoke marijuana, not sure if this has anything to do with. I also have roscea,ashtma and dermatitis.

pkl4589,
CRP is a general marker of inflammation.  Your level is within the normal range (there is some variability in what is normal based on how individual laboratories/centers run the serum assay).  Regardless, no matter who ran your assay, your level is not elevated.  If you were having other tests for rheumatologic processes (ANA, celiac studies, etc) as you described, then your physician was likely reassured with a normal CRP.  
There have been some studies looking at CRP elevation and coronary artery disease development, but these studies were not convincing for any level of significant correlation between the two.
Hope that helps.
