CRP: CRP is a marker of inflammation in the body, the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) determines a person's risk for heart disease. Many consider a high CRP level to be a risk factor for heart disease. However, it is not known whether CRP is merely a sign of cardiovascular disease or if it actually plays a role in causing heart problems. CRP has no connection with your blood PH.
