This simple low-cost yet accurate blood test measures levels of inflammation in the body. High levels of inflammation can increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and degenerative diseases.
C-reactive protein (CRP) testing can be used for both diagnosis and risk assessment.
While inflammation can be a normal, healthy response to injury and certain transitory conditions, chronic inflammation is associated with chronic disease. CRP, which is produced by the liver, immune cells and fat cells, has long been known to be a marker for inflammation.
If testing shows elevated CRP levels, it may signal the presence of an autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease or inflammatory bowel disease, or increased risk of degenerative diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
The C-Reactive Protein (CRP) blood test can be used by your doctor to track the status of previously diagnosed inflammatory conditions and prescribe anti-inflammatory therapy as needed. Now, however, we also understand that elevated CRP levels are more than just a marker of inflammation ― they are also an active cause of inflammation. With this knowledge, your doctor can take preventive steps to lower CRP levels and the risk of inflammation that fuels disease.
