Description

CRP (C-reactive protein) tests measure the amount of C-reactive protein in the blood, a substance that is produced in response to inflammation. In the case of hormone replacement, CRP tests can be used to assess the risk of cardiovascular diseases and assess the body’s response to hormone replacement therapy. CRP tests can be used to help diagnose and monitor infections, autoimmune diseases, and conditions associated with inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis. High CRP levels are also associated with an increased risk of stroke in addition to other health risks. The level of CRP in the blood may be monitored over time to assess the effectiveness of treatments being used. Since elevated levels of CRP are associated with inflammation and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, this test can be used to assess an individual’s health and inform treatment decisions.
