Inflammation Test

What is an Inflammation Test?

The Better2Know Inflammation Test is able to detect inflammation in the body, which can be caused by many diseases including infections, auto-immune conditions and cancers.

Why consider an Inflammation Test?

If you have been suffering from chronic inflammation and you are concerned about whether it may be arthritis, an auto-immune disorder or bowel disease, our Inflammation Test is suitable for you.

How does this test work?

This test requires a blood sample to be collected by a nurse or trained healthcare professional, and sent to our accredited laboratory using the postage-paid envelope provided.

What tests will be run on my sample?

This test will assess the following:

  • Full blood count (FBC) with a 5-part differential. This test checks the levels of all your different blood cells identifying any abnormalities.
  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). The ESR measures the rate at which blood cells settle in a tube. Faster rates can indicate inflammatory problems.
  • C-Reactive Protein (CRP). This is a substance produced by the liver and is a marker for infection and inflammation. Elevated levels of CRP could signify chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease or lupus.
