About the Test
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein produced in the liver. Blood concentrations of CRP typically increase in response to tissue injury, infection, and inflammation. CRP levels can rise as much as 1,000-fold after a serious event, and this test can help healthcare professionals diagnose and monitor severe inflammatory responses. The high-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) is more sensitive than a CRP test and accurately detects low but persistent levels of inflammation, which may be associated with developing CVD. If your hs-CRP level is abnormal, a healthcare provider may recommend additional testing to help further assess your risk.
