Thats really high..: Low, intermediate, and high risk CRP values were defined as 3 mg/l. A value above 10 mg/l should be repeated after an interval of at least two weeks and you should be evaluated for infection or inflammation. Plz talk to your primary care provider.

A 26-year-old female asked:

Does regular c-reactive protein level predict heart attack? Or only high-sensitivity crp?

Sensitivity: It takes a lot more inflammation for the CRP to rise while the hscrp detects much lower levels of inflammation in the body.
