Chronic inflammation happens as a result of the body’s natural healing process of inflammation turning harmful when it continues long after the original response was first needed. While it’s a relatively complicated process, inflammation becomes “chronic” if your internal “emergency alarm” fails to shut off when it should. This ends up allowing chronic inflammation to destroy healthy tissue and create related symptoms.
More and more research continues to come out about the role of chronic inflammation in the development of many diseases and cancers. We make a point to talk to all of our patients about what chronic inflammation is so they can reduce their risk of developing it.
Even if you’re already experiencing the warning signs of chronic inflammation, you can still take practical steps to stop it in its tracks, and you can start today. Get this two laboratory blood test today to determine your levels of inflammation.
- CRP blood test (C-reactive protein) - This is sometimes called an acute phase protein. This means that the level of CRP increases when you have certain diseases which cause inflammation. CRP can be measured in a blood sample. The CRP test measures the level of one specific protein, whereas the ESR takes account of many proteins.
- ESR blood test (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) - If certain proteins cover red cells, these will stick to each other and cause the red cells to fall more quickly. A high ESR indicates that you have some inflammation, somewhere in the body.
