C3 Test Overview

C3 are proteins that form the complement system which is a part of the immune system. The complement system is made up of close to 30 proteins which work together to protect the body against any infections or diseases. The main function of C3 along with other proteins is to form antibodies against infections, destroy the dead cells, neutralize the virus and bacteria, and build up the immunity. But at times they may even destroy healthy tissues leading to autoimmune disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions

C3 test is usually recommended in cases of:

  • Recurrent bacterial infections
  • Unexplained swelling or allergies
  • Suspected autoimmune disorders like Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) or Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
  • To decide the effectiveness of treatment of autoimmune diseases.

C3 test measures the levels of C3 complement protein in the blood.

During C3 test blood sample is taken from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. You may feel a  little sting when the needle goes in or out. This usually takes less than five minutes. In new-borns the blood is taken from the skin behind the heel.

Low C3 levels may occur due to autoimmune disorders like SLE, RA or psoriatic arthritis, C3 protein deficiency, hepatitis, kidney disorders or even organ transplant rejections.

High C3 levels mean that there is an acute infection or inflammation. Increase in C3 levels in those undergoing treatment for autoimmune disorders mean that the treatment is working well. The levels may be high even during a heart attack, sarcoidosis, ulcerative colitis or due to certain cancers.
