Crp and sed rate

My crp was 10.7mg/L
(Normal range 0.0-3.3)
My sed rate was 12
(normal range 0.0-20)

Is this good or bad?
I was on 50mg of prednisone for asthma when blood was taken, will this affect it any?
Just keeping y'all updated.

Still waiting on my ibd SGI diagnostic and stool tests.

My Support Groups:
Your CRP is a little bit elevated. Nothing to be too concerned about but obviously some inflammation in the body. Doesn't mean it's crohns, can be a cold, virus anything.

CRP tends to react fast so if you have cold, infection or something it tends to react faster, ESR is a little slower so it would lend more towards long term infection something that's been going on for a while.
