What is a normal C reactive protein level?

A reading greater than 3 mg/L means you're at high risk for cardiovascular disease. A reading above 10 mg/L may indicate a need for further testing to determine the cause of severe inflammation in your body. An especially high CRP reading of greater than 10 mg/L may indicate: a bone infection, or osteomyelitis.


Liver produces the C reactive protien in our body. The high level of C reactive protein show the possibility of inflammation. It is among the group of proteins known as acute phase reactants that increases in respond to inflammation. The inflammatory proteins called cytokines, increase the level of acute phase reactants. The normal range of CRP is below 3.0 mg/L.
