My fist indication of liver disease was when I had frequent nose bleeds. I went to the doctor and she determined I had very high blood pressure. She gave me medication and did further blood test work. The blood test came back showing extremely poor liver function. She sent me to a specialist who determined I had severe liver damage and was in stage four liver disease. He told me to get my affairs in order, and that I had maybe a month to five years to live maximum without a transplant. My doctor, convinced me to get on a transplant list. I survived seven years and got on the transplant list. My liver was so bad I ended up losing my kidneys and was on dialysis. Fortunately I got a liver and kidney transplant. After 19 months I am currently doing amazing with great liver and kidney function. The key is I only drink water, nothing else. All transplant patients should drink water only to clear the system of impurities and enhance liver and kidney function.

I have been on statin medication off and on for 15 months now, and I have been in a lot of pain in my feet and ankle. Now I have very bad pain in my left hand and wrist and the right hand. I stay very busy all the time. For the past two weeks I haven't been able to do yard work, it is so painful. It was so painful yesterday to even make the bed with clean sheets or cooking dinner or cleaning up after dinner. I had a shot today in the right wrist in hopes it helps so I will be able to sleep tonight. I am stopping the statin as of 11/13/2015 and see what happens in the next 10 days. The pain is awful. Hello doctors, listen to the patients and start talking to each other.

My CRP (C-reactive protein) results were 0.1. I have not heard back from my doctor yet but I think this is a good result.

C-reactive protein level was 2, very low. I have bronchiectasis.

My friend is on ventilator for the last 14 days. His CRP (C-reactive protein) is 247.5, LDH is 538H and creatine kinase (CK) is 195H. Other lab reports are normal. There is no other clinical history of any problem.

My highest C-reactive protein (CRP) level was 103.2. My doctor said it was off the charts. That was a year ago, it is now down to 3.61.

My C-reactive protein was 14.7.

I am a 64 year old woman with C-reactive protein slightly above optimal range at 1.14.

My C reactive protein was 10.50 and also the ESR was 45. I would like to have an idea of the meaning or possibilities of what this could mean. I get restless easily and get tired most of the time I feel weak. I am not sure if these results are related to my symptoms. I have been to several doctors and they don't seem to know what is wrong. I also had a hemi colectomy two years ago which seems to be have been the beginning of my health problems.

I was on blood pressure and cholesterol medications and take insulin for my diabetes (19 years). I was overweight and my health was declining, so I finally decided to make some positive changes in my life, once and for all. Two years ago I quit eating grains and refined and processed foods. I now eat all of the meat, good fats, and vegetables I can hold plus some low glycemic high anti-oxidant fruits, nuts, and seeds. I have lost and kept off 80lbs of fat (mostly visceral). I got off my cholesterol and blood pressure/heart rhythm medications and now have blood pressure in the 90/55 range and all my blood lipids are in the very good range. My hs-CRP is 0.08 mg/dl. I also reduced my insulin resistance by over 300%.
