Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your test report carefully.

  • All the indicators were perfectly in normal range, except hs-CRP (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein) that you are worried about.
  • I have to say that this marker is not specific, although they say future cardiac diseases may occur. It can be raised in every inflammatory condition in your body.
  • If you have an old inflammatory condition for example, joint and bone pain or muscle pain, hs-CRP may be increased. Also, the presence of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis is the main cause of it.
  • Even though you have normal lipids in your test, your BMI (body mass index) is above normal.
  • Your weight is quite higher compared to the normal according to your length. This means you have to try to lower your weight. Do more physical activity and have a healthy diet with low fats and high vitamins and liquids. If you normalize your weight, I am sure that your hs-CRP will be normal.
  • Another way that has been tried to low hs-CRP is taking statins. For example Atorvastatin, drug to lower the cholesterol. But, since you do not have high blood lipids, I would recommend you the first one.
  • Do not be so worried. It is just a lifestyle issue. Take care and best wishes.
