C-Reactive Protein, High Sensitivity (CRP, hs) measurement by an inflammatory panel or C-Reactive Protein, High Sensitivity (CRP, hs). CRP may improve the predictive value of other markers used to determine cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease risk. CRP levels rise for no apparent reason. CRP is a marker for a variety of diseases and should be assessed in conjunction with a full clinical history. The high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test detects reduced C-reactive protein levels in the blood (CRP). This protein is used to determine the overall degree of inflammation in your body. The hs-CRP can be used to determine whether or not someone is at risk for heart disease or stroke.

Vitamin D is associated with a healthy immune system and bone health. Vitamin D deficiency is curable by spending more time in the sun, consuming foods rich in Vitamin D, or through supplementation.
