Hi all :)

I was wondering... when you have had your blood tests what do you get told about your crp results to go in your blood monitoring book?

I used to be told the score, for e.g crp 15 or 34. Now they have a new policy. Im either told its simply <8 (below 8) or >8 (above 8)!!
I was told today its above 8, but that dosent really tell me much. was it 9? or 59? haha.

Does anyone else just get their crp results like that?

    My GP fills in my blood results in my blue book every time I put in a prescription request for my meth but the CRP levels are never recorded. I've no idea what they are.

    Hi,

    Mine are still given to me as a number, mind you I'm no longer on mtx. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    I always ask the receptionist for a printout of my blood results. It is very detailed.
