Hi again, yesterday I received my results from my monthly blood test. I was diagnosed with GCA last July. My pred level is now at 13. My Rheumy wrote me an email saying that my CPR had risen. I have been following all of your advice and have been reducing very slowly with his permission. I don't know if the measurements correspond with those of the U.S. We are supposed to be at a normal range of < = 0.5
MIne has fluctuated between those points since taking pred. I started at 80 mg. My CRP was then 15. This week's test result showed mine to be 1.6. Obviously that is of some concern. My question is has anyone experienced this, and is it a sign of a relapse? What is considered to be dangerously high? My Rheumy will get back to me this week, but I would like your imput please.
Thank you for all of your advice and help.
