hs-CRP

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.
