Hi ! The CRP lab test checks for inflammation. It sounds like your result is high, but of course I wouldn't know what methodology the lab used and the normal ranges.
The usual range for CRP is up to 3.
The test is non-specific even though it says it is for cardiac. As platelet gal says, it means inflammation. I have had high readings (in the 40's).
You have to find the reason for the underlying disease - this test does not indicate the disease. For me, this was Cushing's disease. Once I got it more under control, my levels dropped. It can be almost any auto-immune or inflammatory disease.
