COVID-19 inflammation test at home
What is an inflammation test?
When you have inflammation in a certain part of your body, it will release extra protein from the part and circulate in the bloodstream. Doctors use specific blood tests to assess where the inflammation is happening.
The four cardinal signs of inflammation are
Why do I need an inflammation test?
Inflammation can be both short term and long term. If your inflammation lasts for months or years then it is chronic inflammation.
Some symptoms of inflammation are:
- Swelling of joints that can be warm when touched.
- Joint pain
- Joint stiffness
Other flu-like symptoms caused by inflammation are:
- Muscle stiffness
- Loss of appetite
If you want to know more about the above mentioned symptoms/conditions, please refer to our in depth medical guides online.
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, you can take an RT PCR Test, and if tested positive, an inflammation test is used to measure the severity of the inflammation and address the next steps of the treatment.
What is an inflammation test procedure?
Inflammatory markers are biomarkers that are used to assess someone for:
- Any presence/absence of inflammatory disease.
- Any activity of the known disease.
These inflammatory markers can show the inflammation in the body but do not identify what is causing it. For COVID-19 it is advised to take the inflammation test for positive patients.
1. C-reactive protein (CRP) Test:
CRP test for COVID-19 measures the amount of C- reactive protein, a type of substance produced by your liver when there is high inflammation in the body. If you are tested positive for COVID-19, your body produces an excessive amount of C-reactive proteins.
2. LDH (Kinetic) test:
This test is used to measure the level of LDH in your blood and other body fluids. LDH plays an important role in building energy in your body. LDH is usually found in tissues of your blood, lungs, heart, brain and lungs.
3. Serum Ferritin test:
This test measures the amount of ferritin in your body. Ferritin is a protein that helps your cells store iron in them. This test determines if your iron levels are within the normal range.
4. ESR Test:
Generally, our red blood cells sediment at the bottom of the test tube at a slow rate. A faster than normal sedimentation of red blood cells means high inflammation in blood tests.
Complete blood test:
A Complete blood test measures the various components of the blood and if they are present in adequate quantities.
D dimer test:
D dimer test is used to rule out the presence of any serious blood clot in your body.
Inflammation can cause serious blood clots in your body and to understand that, the D dimer test is performed.
Liver function test:
A liver function test is used to indicate any abnormalities in your liver due to inflammation. A series of blood tests is taken to determine the proteins and enzymes in your blood and how much bile the liver clears out in the blood.

Frequently asked questions on Inflammation test
What does it mean when your inflammatory markers are elevated?
High levels of inflammatory markers can indicate inflammation in the arteries of the heart and also an ongoing tissue injury/organ damage.
What are inflammatory markers in COVID-19?
Inflammatory markers consist of CRP test positive, ESR and Pv, IL-6, D Dimer, LDH, Ferritin,etc which are commonly used for detecting aberrant inflammation or, in rare cases, cancer. Inflammatory markers are now used for COVID-19 to find out the seriousness in the condition of the patient.
What is the main cause of inflammation in the body?
When inflammation happens in your body, the chemicals from your white blood cells enter your blood or tissues to protect your body from any infection or disease. This raises the blood flow in the injured area resulting in redness and swelling.
Does inflammation weaken the immune system?
When your body heals, inflammation acts as a barrier to protect it from any foreign substance or invaders. When inflammation is chronic or lasts for a long duration (usually for months or years), it could be due to an underlying infection/autoimmune disorder, or in rare cases, cancer. Rather than assuming, if you have any of the above mentioned inflammatory symptoms you can perform an inflammatory test to understand the status of your health better. Early detection is the key to treatment.
Can inflammation affect internal organs?
Inflammation can affect your organs which can cause various problems like shortness of breath if there is inflammation of your heart or lungs. Inflammation of the kidneys may cause high blood pressure or kidney failure.
