hs-CRP Test

Measure your CRP levels at home with our affordable private blood test kit. This high sensitivity finger prick test lets you easily find out the levels of hs-CRP (C Reative Protein) within your body and identify any potential inflammation.

High levels of CRP can be a potential risk indicator for heart disease or an indication of a bacterial infection. Hs-CRP levels fluctuate greatly, so we would recommend regular testing in order to establish your own unique trend over time.

These levels also rise dramatically after an intense burst of exercise, so the finger prick blood test is best carried out before a workout or a few days after.

Testing is easy. You buy the kit. We send it out to you quickly and you return your sample. We'll then analyse your sample in our UK lab and make the detailed results available for you on a digital dashboard that you can access online any time.

Why take a hs-CRP test?

  • A hs-CRP blood test can help you to identify whether you have a bacterial infection
  • To test for any inflammation in the body
  • To track performance and recovery as a recreational or professional athlete

Benefits of hs-CRP Testing

By taking our simple finger prick hs-CRP blood test at home, you can identify whether you may have inflammation, a bacterial infection or even potential risk indicators of heart disease.

By identifying this, you can then take the necessary steps to lower your CRP levels, either by dealing with any infection or inflammation, or by modifying your diet and lowering cholesterol levels.

Being aware of your CRP levels is the first step toward reversing any elevation.

CRP levels could be lowered by modifying your diet to cut your intake of additives, sugars, foods that are high in cholesterol and generally processed foods.

With our test, you’ll have results in an easy-to-understand dashboard within days.

What our customers say

As a working mum, I often find myself training ‘tired’ as the demands of day-to-day life take their toll.  Forth has enabled me to gain a valuable insight into what is happening ‘under the surface’, so I  can adapt my training and lifestyle.

Kate Allan

I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.

Alice Hector

I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell. What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low.  By using Forth to test key biomarkers has put me in control of the areas I need to improve.

Jude Peck, 42

Taking the test is simple just make sure you follow all the instructions so you follow the correct procedures. The customer service is second to none and the results are easy to understand and follow.

Matthew Bottrill

I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.

Holly Rush, 39

I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron.  My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP.  Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health

Mark Threfall, 29

As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body. 

Brian Smith

Forth really helped me understand issues that I was having, which in the end turned out to be problems with iron absorption. Without their test I would never have known this. I now have the knowledge I need to improve.

Sean Conway

I was keen to use Forth’s service to help monitor my haematological markers in particular since I've had problems in the past and by the time they are picked up by the GP I'm normally feeling unwell.  The test was quick and easy to do and results were back very quickly. The results are also incredibly accurate, being almost identical to those from tests done by my GP the same day.
