Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand you are worried about your health, but no need for much worries.

  • Your CRP (C-reactive protein) is a little increased, but it is not a particular biomarker for cardiovascular diseases. Some other factors can cause it to increase like arthritis or infection.
  • Your BMI of 38 means you are extremely obese, and it puts you at a risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  • You have to start exercising for at least three days in a week, eating a healthy meal and reduce salt intake. You should get a diet plan from a dietitian.
  • First, you should get your blood pressure reading for and revert. Take care.
