Depends: It depends on what your blood pressure is normally, if you've started any new medications lately, if you're using a new machine, or a number of other factors. It is also important to know your blood level of your blood thinner is. Very high levels can lead to spontaneous bleeding. You should see your physician as soon as possible.

C-reactive Proteins: Hi
the highly senstive test for c-reactive proteins is a wide ranging attempt to measure arterial inflammation. I.E. A way to ascertain if one has any inflammatory process in the arterial system.
This is a newer way to monitor one's cardiac risk in addition to cholesterol and other cardiology testing and procedures.
It is a valid and important addition to our primary care of adults with risk.
