The C-reactive protein (CRP) blood test measures the level of systemic inflammation. Life Extension® believes that chronic inflammation is the common denominator of all age-related diseases. Uncontrolled systemic inflammation places you at risk for many degenerative diseases like heart disease and stroke.
The CRP test offered by Life Extension is highly sensitive which is able to measure even the smallest amount of inflammation in your body.
Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
