Summary: C-Reactive Protein is an established marker of inflammation and can be an important contributor to pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic elements of cardiovascular disease. High levels are associated with higher risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
ZRT Product Name: hsCRP
Symptoms of high hs-CRP level:
Testing for Insulin Resistance
Our Canary Club High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) blood-spot test provides an accurate assessment of the amount of inflammation in the body to provide physicians with more diagnostic clues regarding a person’s cardio metabolic risk.
People who have hs-CRP levels in the high end of the normal range have a 1.5 to 4 times greater risk of having a heart attack as those in the low end of the normal range.
Measurement of hs-CRP does not reflect where in the body the inflammation is, however. It may reflect inflammation detected in cells in the fatty deposits of arterial walls, or it may reflect inflammation from any part of the body. However, when hs-CRP is tested in combination with other cardio metabolic markers, physicians can find valuable clues regarding a person’s risk for type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and stroke.
Infection anywhere in the body
Abnormal levels of other cardio metabolic markers (such as total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and Triglycerides)
Or, no external symptoms at all
What does the Canary Club High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) Blood-spot test do?
This new and innovative test is generally performed in combination with a panel of cardio metabolic tests -- such as total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides -- to determine overall cardio metabolic risk.
