Our high sensitivity CRP blood test measures the level of low level inflammation within your body. High levels of CRP are a risk indicator for heart disease . However CRP can also be used as an indicator that your body is suffering from a bacterial infection. As hs-CRP levels can fluctuate significantly, regular testing is recommended in order to establish a trend. CRP levels will rise dramatically following an intense burst of exercise, so the test is best carried out before or a few days after any workout.

Your cardiovascular system consists of your heart and the network of arteries, veins and capillaries which are responsible for transporting oxygen, hormones and nutrients throughout the body. Unfortunately, coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the UK. Factors which increase the risk of heart disease include high cholesterol, smoking, being overweight and lack of exercise.
