An established marker of inflammation, hs-CRP can be a major indicator of cardiovascular disease, especially if it is present in arterial walls. High levels are associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack and stroke.
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.

What does the Canary Club High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) Blood-spot test do?
This 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. See our CardioMetabolic Profile for this comprehensive testing.
The lab will email you within 3-5 business days after they receive the samples for on-line access to your results.
