I'm 65 years old, with heart disease in family history. What benefit from the high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hs-crp) test in physical exam?

CRP test for hearts. Most experts agree that testing for highly sensitive CRP does not add much to the traditional assessment of cardiac risk factors. The main factors to pay attention to (in addition) to the family history are exercise, diet, blood pressure, cholesterol, daily aspirin, not smoking, relaxation, maintaining weight. The value for CRP has been for low risk patients with relatively low cholesterol.
Inflammation marker. CRP measures inflammation esp inside vessels - atherogenic marker - important to bring CRP and glucose level to normal.
