£39.00Price

C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein made by the liver. The level of CRP increases when there's inflammation in the body. A simple blood test can check your C-reactive protein level.

 

A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test is more sensitive than a standard C-reactive protein test. That means the high-sensitivity test can find smaller increases in C-reactive protein than a standard test can.

 

The hs-CRP test can help show the risk of getting coronary artery disease. In coronary artery disease, the arteries of the heart narrow. Narrowed arteries can lead to a heart attack.

  • The benefits of a C-reactive protein test?

    Your health care provider might order a C-reactive protein test to:

    • Check for infection.
    • Help diagnose a chronic inflammatory disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.
    • Learn your risk of heart disease.
    • Learn your the risk of a second heart attack.

    A note about CRP tests for heart disease

    A high level of hs-CRP in the blood has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks. Also, people who have had a heart attack are more likely to have another heart attack if they have a high hs-CRP level. But their risk goes down when their hs-CRP level is in the typical range.

    An hs-CRP test isn't for everyone. The test doesn't show the cause of inflammation. So it's possible to have a high hs-CRP level without it affecting the heart.

    An hs-CRP test may be most useful for people who have a 10% to 20% chance of having a heart attack within the next 10 years. This is known as intermediate risk. A health care provider can determine your risk using tests that look at your lifestyle choices, family history and overall health.
