Cardiac C-reactive protein (CRP) test is used to help assess your risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
The normal range of CRP is less than 10 milligram per liter (mg/L).
CRP level greater than 10 mg/L may indicate
- Serious infection
- Chronic disease
The high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test can also evaluate your risk of developing coronary artery disease.
- Hs-CRP levels of less than 1.0 milligram per liter (mg/L) may indicate lower risk of getting heart diseases.
- Hs-CRP levels between 1.0 to 3.0 mg/L may indicate average risk of getting heart diseases.
- Hs-CRP levels of above 3.0 mg/L may indicate higher risk of getting heart diseases.
