About the Test

Ordering the hs-C-reactive Protein Test with Access Medical Laboratories

The high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test is more sensitive than the standard CRP test. This is because the high-sensitivity test can detect slight increases within the normal range of standard CRP levels.

Which Patients is the hs-C-reactive Protein Test Best Used For?

hs-CRP is often ordered in conjunction with other tests that are performed to assess the risk of heart disease, such as a lipid panel to determine the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

The test is not recommended as a routine test. A hs-CRP test may be most beneficial for people with a 10- 20% chance of having a heart attack within the next ten years.

The results for the hs-CRP test indicate:

  • hs-CRP level of lower than 1.0 mg/L = low risk of CVD
  • hs-CRP level of 1.0 mg/L and 3.0 mg/L = moderate risk of CVD
  • hs-CRP level of more than 3.0 mg/L = high risk of CVD

About the Test

This is a single-marker test measuring hs-CRP. It is used to assess cardiovascular disease risk.
