High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) Test


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 . 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 :

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

    • Diabetes
    • Irritable bowel syndrome

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

  • 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.
