How to get your CRP tested

Order CRP (C-reactive protein) blood testing online

In the majority of US states you can order CRP testing online and have the blood drawn at a local blood draw center (see my general overview of the process).

I'd suggest ordering from Life Extension because they have the cheapest price I know of ($42), and I've been happy with their service. You can also compare the other 6 CRP test providers I've found.

Take a look at my state-specific issues page if you're in AZ, MD, NJ, NY or RI.

Understanding the results

The American Association for Clinical Chemistry has helpful pages for understanding the test and answering common questions.

Sources for "quantitative" testing (not the one most people want)

Unlike the high-sensitivity tests above, quantitative CRP testing can only test large amounts. It's used for identifying specialized infection or inflammation problems.

Please leave a comment if you see a way to improve this page or if you have any questions. Keep in mind that I know little about the medical side of bloodwork, I just enjoy making sites with lists of things.
