Elevated CRP

I've received a copy of a letter sent to my GP from the last endo I saw in August. She mentioned an 'elevated CRP'. I've looked at my latest bloods and it's

CRP - High Sensitivity 6.6 mg/L 0.00 - 5.00

Is this connected to high antibodies? The latest private test I did which was Medichecks the thyroglobulin was raised. How to reduce CRP down please?

Hey Marigold :) Magnesium oil did it for me, helps me sleep and helped my creaking joints too. You have to work through the Magnesium tingle but it's worth it and inexpensive.

Thanks Rapunzel. Will get Magnesium Oil. I'm still Fuming having read that endo's letter today. I took 5 print outs to that appointment, to be well armed for a fight. One was Hippocratic Oath off Thyroid UK site & highlighted the Keep up to Date statement. She's told my GP that I gave it to her!!! She don't like it :-)

Which brand of Mag Oil do you use?

Is that so? Well, we don't like your cr*ppy treatment protocols either missus, so we're about even, OK? 😡

I use Better You magnesium spray and have seen other posts swearing by it. I don't need a spray I'm sweary anyway :) It's under £8 on eBay incl postage but you can try 15ml first for under £4 postpaid. Don't bother with the artsy sleep/joints/sensitive/sports ones - the original has the most magnesium in it and works a treat I spray it on my knees and soles about half an hour before sleep. Zechstein sourced magnesium is the real deal and at this price, it's an absolute steal. Hope it works for you xx

CRP = C Reactive protein is produced in the liver in response to inflammation. It indicates inflammation but not where the inflammation is. If you Google it, you will see there is lots of information on it.

There are two kinds of CRP test :

Standard CRP : labtestsonline.org.uk/under...

High sensitivity : labtestsonline.org.uk/under...

The first one is the one that the NHS usually does, as far as I know.

CRP can be high due to Hashimoto's

Reading your previous posts, you have lost your T3

Are you on T4 only now or have you sourced privately

Are you gluten free? This can help lower antibodies

I've sourced some T3 thanks, but now seeing a homeopath. I am gluten free. I probably need another antibody blood test soon to see if the thyroglobulin is lower. Thanks
