In Topic: Anyone Had C Reactive Protein Test ?

06 August 2014 - 11:30 AM

Yes, I get  this done  yearly,  I  do  both  tests.. One  checks  on  heart  function  & the other  for  body inflammation...  Mine  run  high for  inflammation....I'm not a  doctor  but  I was  told  the  high  sensitive  one  is  for  heart but  I never  researched  it  as  mine  was  fine  but  the  regular  Crp   is  always  on the  high  side...


Thank you for your response. You are absolutely right hs crp is a marker for risk of heart disease as well in addition to being influenced by inflammation. So my moms elevation could be heart or inflammation related. If you dont mind, what were your numbers on the test ?
