hsCRP Test for Inflammation MarkerDetect for low but persistent levels of inflammation. Healthcare professionals may use this test to help assess the relative risk of developing cardiovascular disease risk. Read more
How it works
The standard CRP and the hs-CRP inflammation marker tests both measure c-reactive protein. CRP levels in traditional testing range from 10 mg/L to 1000 mg/L, whereas hs-CRP levels are detected as low as 0.1 mg/L and reported specifically up to 10 mg/L. Values above 10 mg/L are abnormal and are reported as >10 mg/L. The hs-CRP can detect slight elevations in CRP levels that would be considered normal on a traditional CRP test. This evaluation is important since it falls within the range of cardiac risk detection.
