How is inflammation diagnosed?

A Answers (1)

  • Inflammation can be measured by markers in the blood. C-reactive protein is often present during inflammation and can also be used to predict inflammatory diseases like heart problems. Other inflammatory diseases can be diagnosed by doctors who have studied your medical history and performed a physical exam that included a discussion of painful joints, stiffness, and any other inflammatory symptoms.
