hsCRP Profile Blood Test

hsCRP Profile Blood Test – C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein in the blood that increases when inflammation is present. CRP has been used for many years as an indicator of infection and inflammation associated with disease.

Doctors now believe that atherosclerosis (fatty build-up in artery walls, also called ‘hardening of the arteries’) is also an inflammatory process. However, the inflammation from atherosclerosis is a low level of long-term inflammation that produces only small amounts of CRP. Therefore, the test requires higher sensitivity than previous tests in order to detect the small increases of CRP. Thus, this test is known as high-sensitivity CRP or hsCRP.

hsCRP Profile Blood Test

hs-CRP profile blood testing is now being used as a method for predicting a healthy person’s risk of heart attack or other heart conditions.

If your hs-CRP result is at the high end of the normal range, it may suggest that you are at risk of developing cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease and other heart conditions. People who seem to be healthy but who have hs-CRP results in the highest quarter of test results have 2 to 4 times the risk of developing blocked arteries, compared with those in the lowest quarter.

The CRP molecule itself is not a harmful molecule in the body. The higher level of CRP is simply a marker of higher than normal inflammation. Because half of heart attacks and strokes happen in patients who do not have high levels of fat in their blood, measurement of hs-CRP may help doctors identify patients who are at risk and may need medical treatment to reduce your risk of developing vascular disease.

Why have a hsCRP Profile Blood Test

You may need a hsCRP Profile Blood Test to help cardiologists assess risk for acute coronary syndrome (clogged blood vessels around the heart). Some doctors use the test to assist with making the decision whether to prescribe lipid lowering medication to reduce vascular risk. Where the decision has already been made to commence lipid lowering treatment, there may be little to be gained by measuring hs-CRP.

hsCRP Profile Blood Testing may be requested as one of several tests for a cardiovascular risk profile, often along with lipid (fat) tests, like the various tests for cholesterol and triglycerides.
