Hs-CRP Test (C-Reactive Protein High Sensitive)

What is Hs-CRP Test?

The hs CRP (C-Reactive Protein high sensitive) test is a blood test that measures the level of C-reactive protein (CRP) in your body. CRP is a protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation, and its level rises in the blood when there's inflammation in the body.

CRP High Sensitivity Test Purpose

C-Reactive Protein Hs Test is often used to assess the risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), as higher levels of CRP can indicate a higher risk of CVD. However, high levels of CRP can also be seen in other conditions, including infections and autoimmune diseases.The hs-CRP test is more sensitive than the standard CRP test and can detect lower levels of the protein.

Hs C-Reactive Protein test is typically used alongside other tests and risk factors (such as high blood pressure and cholesterol levels) to assess an individual's risk of CVD. It may also be used to monitor disease activity in inflammatory conditions and to check the effectiveness of treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

The hs-CRP test measures the amount of C-reactive protein in the blood at lower levels than the standard CRP test. It helps assess the risk of cardiovascular diseases, as inflammation is linked to atherosclerosis. The test is also used to monitor inflammatory conditions and assess response to treatment.

A high CRP level generally indicates the presence of inflammation in the body. It is a non-specific marker, meaning it doesn't pinpoint the exact cause of inflammation but signals that something might be wrong. High CRP levels can be associated with infections, chronic inflammatory conditions, autoimmune diseases, or cardiovascular issues.

A normal hs-CRP level is typically considered to be less than 1. 0 milligram per deciliter (mg/dL). However, it's important to note that normal ranges can vary between laboratories, and healthcare providers interpret results based on an individual's overall health and medical history.

Various infections can lead to an increase in hs-CRP levels. Bacterial infections such as pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and viral infections like influenza can contribute to elevated CRP levels. It is important to consider other clinical information and tests to determine the specific cause of the inflammation.

An Hs-CRP level greater than 10 mg/L suggests significant inflammation, potentially indicating increased cardiovascular risk or inflammatory conditions, requiring further evaluation by a healthcare professional.

CRP, also known as C-reactive protein, is a marker for general inflammation. On the other hand, Hs-CRP or high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, is specifically designed to detect lower levels of inflammation. It is commonly used to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease. Hs-CRP is more sensitive than CRP and can identify inflammation even at lower levels.
