What is C-Reactive Protein Test (CRP)?

Why is a Cardio Reactive Protein blood test important?

Cardio Reactive Protein or C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a biomarker that reflects the presence of inflammation in the body. The level of CRP can be measured in your blood and increases when there is inflammation in your body.

This inflammation can weaken blood vessels and cause cholesterol plaques to loosen and create blockages. It has been referred to as “the match that lights the cardiovascular fire”. High levels of CRP are associated with the risk of developing cardiovascular disease; i.e. heart attack or stroke. 

If you have increased cardiac risk, consider asking your physician to test your C-reactive protein (CRP) or have your level tested at your next appointment with Dr. Sinda.

Doctor’s Perspective

Doctor’s Perspective

The Glycemic Index (GI) relates to the way your body’s sugar levels respond to certain foods.

Low Glycemic Index eating avoids causing spikes in blood insulin levels. A low GI diet has several advantages:

        • There is no starving involved
        • Cravings (especially for sweets) are decreased dramatically
        • Serum cholesterol levels normalize and weight loss is easy for most who follow it
        • Proteins stay healthier longer- and this slows the aging process
        • There is an increase in fat burning- especially between meals
        • No calorie counting, portion control, or weighing and measuring foods are necessary- just choose your meals and snacks from the Low Glycemic Index lists
