Elevated CRP levels for no apparent reason ?

Hello,

I recently had my blood tested for Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, Glucose and CRP. The thing that stood out and shocked me about the results were my very high levels of CRP of 20.3 This is in spite of the fact that I have been eating completely 'bulletproof' for about half a year. I look and feel healthy. The day before the blood test, I set a deadlift personal best and hence I was extremely sore on the day of my blood test. Could this alone account for the very elevated CRP levels? If not, what could be the cause?

Thank you.

Kind regards

CRP definitely goes up after intense exercise (see here for example, where they found triathlon competitors having almost a 300% rise in CRP 24 hours later).

Still, that's a really high level, so I would definitely do a retest on some week where you've been taking it easy.
