:( I got told it over the phone by the results people and they didn't know what it meant either. And I don't want to google it anymore as it'll just make me panicked
its basically a marker of inflammation anywhere in your body. could indicate infection, or some other inflammatory process. its not very useful on its own, even for a medic, but taken with other blood test results can help aid diagnosis
