High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) Test in Delhi

Overview 

C-reactive protein is produced in the liver and is known as a marker of inflammation. This marker is measured through an hsCRP blood test in Delhi. Inflammation is a method so that the body can prevent itself from infections or injuries caused due to hypertension, high blood sugar, and smoking. Excess inflammation is associated with heart disease. 

As per the WHO data, in 2016, India reported 63% of total deaths due to NCDs, of which 27% were linked to CVDs. CVDs also accounted for 45% of deaths in the 40 to 69 age group. The hsCRP levels can measure the risk of developing heart disease. So, it is essential to check your levels from time to time.

The hsCRP test is also used to diagnose a large range of inflammatory conditions with increased levels like autoimmune conditions, infection, pericarditis, cancer, and tissue & organ injury. 

Purpose of hsCRP test in Delhi:

The clinician will prescribe you go for an hsCRP test in the below-mentioned incidents:

  • Help to detect the risk of cardiovascular diseases. 
  • Monitor the risk of a second heart attack.
  • The screening of vital parameters can also help to diagnose chronic inflammatory disorders like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.
  • The clinician can also check for inflammation due to infection. 

Symptoms in which an hsCRP blood test is required

In case you are experiencing these signs, then it is highly recommended to undergo this test

  • Muscle stiffness, weakness, and soreness
  • Low-grade fever
  • Headache
  • Unexplained exhaustion
  • Loss of appetite, indigestion, and nausea
  • Insomnia 
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Hives or rashes
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Parched mouth, lips, and skin

Causes leading to high hs-CRP levels:

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is a marker of inflammation in the body. Elevated levels of hs-CRP can be indicative of increased inflammation, and several factors can contribute to this. Some common causes leading to high hs-CRP levels include:

  • Infections: Chronic infections, such as bacterial or viral infections, can trigger an inflammatory response, leading to elevated hs-CRP levels.
  • Chronic Inflammatory Conditions: Diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or inflammatory bowel diseases can result in persistent inflammation, causing an increase in hs-CRP.
  • Obesity: Excess body fat, especially abdominal fat, is associated with increased inflammation. Obesity can elevate hs-CRP levels, contributing to cardiovascular risk.
  • Smoking: Smoking is a known risk factor for inflammation. It can increase hs-CRP levels and contribute to various inflammatory conditions, including cardiovascular disease.
  • Physical Inactivity: Lack of regular physical activity is linked to higher levels of inflammation. Exercise has anti-inflammatory effects and can help lower hs-CRP levels.
  • Unhealthy Diet: Consuming a diet high in processed foods, saturated fats, and refined sugars can contribute to inflammation, leading to elevated hs-CRP levels.
  • Metabolic Syndrome: Conditions like insulin resistance, high blood pressure, and abnormal lipid profiles, which collectively make up metabolic syndrome, can be associated with increased inflammation.
  • Stress: Chronic stress may contribute to inflammation in the body. Stress management techniques and lifestyle changes can help mitigate this.
  • Certain Medications: Some medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can affect hs-CRP levels.
  • Genetic Factors: Genetic predisposition may play a role in the regulation of inflammatory markers, including hs-CRP.

Factors affecting the interpretation of hsCRP levels

Certain factors interpret CRP levels quite hard. 

  • Lifestyle- People who are obese, smokers, and perform less physical activity have higher than normal CRP levels.
  • Chronic conditions- The conditions causing persistent inflammation, like autoimmune diseases, can mask the possible causes of elevated hs-CRP levels. 
  • Minor infection or injuries- These health conditions may raise the levels and conceal serious health risks like diabetes.
  • Pregnancy- Pregnancy can increase CRP levels.
  • Estrogen levels- The medicines linked with estrogen-like hormone replacement and birth control pills may raise the levels.

Hence, discussing with the clinician if you face any of the following conditions is a must. Also, he may prescribe other tests to know the exact status of your health. 

Special things to consider before undergoing the hsCRP test in Delhi

  • The test needs to draw blood from the vein. Hence, this test poses a slight risk to the person.
  • The individual may experience a pricking sensation at the time of insertion of the needle. 
  • Take care of the following health conditions when drawing the blood: dizziness or fainting during the test, bruising, and soreness at the site from where blood must be drawn.
  • Individuals with bleeding disorders may experience bleeding after drawing the blood. Hence, it would help if you discussed it with a phlebotomist before opting for the test.
