Understanding hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) in Kolkata


What is hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) in Kolkata?

An hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) is a blood test that measures the concentration of C-reactive protein (CRP) in the bloodstream. It derives its name from its greater sensitivity to CRP levels than standard CRP tests. CRP is a marker of inflammation produced by the liver in response to various stimuli, including infection, tissue injury, and inflammation.

What does hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) measure?

An hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) test is a state-of-the-art biochemical marker to predict potential risks of future diseases. This test is more sensitive than the standard CRP test and can also detect lower CRP levels in the blood. Its accuracy in predicting cardiovascular issues, autoimmune disorders, and other health issues makes it an excellent test to detect asymptomatic conditions with limited diagnosis.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) in Kolkata


Frequently Asked Questions about hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) in Kolkata

Q. Is there any preparation required before the test?

Inform the doctor about the medications you may be taking. No other specific preparations are usually required before this test.

Q. Is there any risk associated with this test?

There is no risk associated with the test. However, since this test involves a needle prick to withdraw the blood sample, in very rare cases, a patient may experience increased bleeding, hematoma formation (blood collection under the skin), bruising or infection at the site of needle prick.

Q. What does the test result of hs-CRP mean?

A hs-CRP test is a CVD risk screening test. The higher the hs-CRP, the higher the risk of developing heart disease and its complications, such as heart attacks, strokes, peripheral vascular disease, and sudden cardiac death. Sometimes, lipid-lowering medications may be prescribed in patients with high hs-CRP levels, even if their cholesterol levels are not high, to reduce their risk of heart disease.

Q. Is hs-CRP specific for predicting heart diseases?

No, hs-CRP is not specific for predicting heart disease. It is a marker of inflammation and can increase in various other medical conditions such as chronic inflammatory conditions (rheumatological disease, lupus, vasculitis), inflammatory bowel disease, infection (such as pneumonia, tuberculosis), surgery, drug reaction, burns, oral contraceptive pill use, or trauma. Recent studies have studies shown that having CRP in the high normal range may also be associated with other diseases, such as colon cancer, complications of diabetes, and obesity.

Q. What is the difference between CRP test and hs-CRP test ?

The standard CRP test measures markedly high levels of CRP to detect diseases that cause significant inflammation. It measures CRP within the range of 10 to 1000 mg/L. The high-sensitivity CRP test detects lower levels of CRP than the standard CRP test and thus helps in evaluating an individual’s risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). It measures CRP within the range of 0.5 to 10 mg/L.

Q. What are symptoms of high C-reactive protein?

There are no specific symptoms of high CRP level as it is not a disease-specific test, instead, the signs and symptoms, if present, will be of any underlying disease condition.

Q. Who should get tested for hs-CRP?

Checking the CRP level of the entire adult population is not recommended. Adult patients at risk of heart disease or with a family history of heart disease should be advised to have hs-CRP along with other screening tests.
