How to take your home blood test
” Infection and inflammation can be monitored with a C-reactive protein (CRP) blood test. Repeated tests often enables doctors to determine if a current infection is improving or not. If you have an acute infection or inflammation your results may be abnormally high.
If you are well, you can check your CRP to see if you have any underlying levels of inflammation”
