C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein found in blood plasma, whose levels rise in response to inflammation. Its origin is in the liver.
Purpose[edit | edit source]
[edit | edit source]
A 2019 study in Norway found that the level of the inflammatory marker high-sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) levels were significantly higher for both the CFS and the fibromyalgia groups compared to healthy controls when adjusting for age, smoking, and BMI.
