I don't think so: As a pathologist, I don't believe that working up an isolated mildly-elevated C-reactive protein value in the absence of other evidence of atherosclerosis risk ever saved a life or made anybody healthier. Many healthy folks run high just on normal biological variability. You might take a stress test, but nobody's going to give you an angiogram or surgery. It's just one piece of information.
