C-reactive protein (CRP) is a substance produced by the liver that increases with the presence of inflammation in the body. An elevated C-reactive protein level is identified with blood tests and is considered a non-specific �marker� for disease.
Your blood spot samples will test: C-reactive protein (CRP) levels.
A high CRP Reading could predict:
- Increased risk of a future heart attack
- Sudden cardiac death
- And/or peripheral arterial disease
Everything you need to collect your sample and return it to the lab is included in the test kit you will receive.

Knowing the amount of CRP in your blood can indicate underlying problems associated with a risk of heart attack or stroke.
