Once your sample is received at the lab, your results will generally be available within 4-7 business days.

Inflammation Test – What is it?

This Inflammation Test looks for inflammation in the body which is an immune response to trauma or infection. The body responds with pain, swelling, and redness, which are all part of an inflammatory response. Short-term inflammation is referred to as acute inflammation and is usually benign. If inflammation continues or is in response to the body’s own tissues, it is referred to as chronic inflammation. C-Reactive Protein is a protein that increases in the blood when inflammation is present. The high-sensitivity CRP test (hs-CRP) can detect increases of CRP protein as an indicator of low levels of inflammation in the body. Low levels of vitamin D correlate with increased CRP levels.

The Inflammation Test is available to you with the convenience and privacy of taking the test at home. No physician order is required. You may be able to purchase this test with your HSA/FSA.

  • Make sure hands (fingers) are warm. Hold under running warm water for 30 seconds if necessary to increase circulation.
  • Be sure to place your finger on a firm surface, like a countertop or kitchen counter, to ensure that you get the proper depth when activating the safety lancet.
