Heart Disease indicator: Cardio C-Reactive Protein (CRP-hs)

Why is this test important? The "High Sensitive" C-reactive protein (CRP) test measures inflammation, which is a marker found in blood. It can estimate your chance of developing cardiovascular disease, and your risk of having a sudden heart attack. This blood test was redesigned from the traditional test to be sensitive enough to detect chronic low-level inflammation.

Test results are independent of cholesterol, family history, and other traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The test can be used in conjunction with traditional tests, such as cholesterol, to determine your risk.

The test can be useful if you have an intermediate risk of heart disease and your doctor needs additional information to decide whether to pursue diagnostic tests. Taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or Advil, or statins to lower cholesterol, may reduce your hs-CRP level. You should be healthy when you are tested because any recent illness, tissue injury, injection, or general inflammation will raise the amount of hs-CRP and give a false estimate of your risk for heart disease. If you have chronic inflammation from arthritis, your hs-CRP levels will likely be very high and you should not be tested.

What does the test include? HIGHLY SENSITIVE C-Reactive protein
