Our high sensitivity CRP finger prick blood test measures low level inflammation within your body. 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.
CRP 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.
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 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.

It was trying to better understand my health (and improve it) what intrigued me to take a Forth blood test. Ordering the test was easy and I received a notification email that my results were ready just 1 day after the blood sample was taken. The dashboard is pretty cool and an easy way to track how many biomarkers are in normal range, which ones need attention and finally which food types can help to optimise these biomarkers.
Test type: phlebotomy
