CORONARY HEART DISEASE
C-Reactive Protein Tests
Coronary Heart Disease can be detected early with C-Reactive Protein Tests. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a substance produced by the liver and its levels increase during periods of inflammation. Though not condition specific, inflammation is a significant indicator of health problems such as coronary heart disease. Early detection of coronary heart disease is possible with a C-Reactive Protein Test.
The high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein Test combines the convenience of a home sample collection with the accuracy of a certified clinical laboratory determination.
The major factors that promote coronary heart disease - cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, and high blood sugar - are well established. These risk factors give rise to a variety of noxious stimuli that cause the release of chemicals and the activation of cells involved in the inflammatory process. These events are thought to contribute not only to the formation of plaque but may also contribute to its disruption resulting in the formation of a blood clot. Thus, virtually every step in the development of plaque is believed to involve substances involved in the inflammatory response and cells that are characteristic of inflammation.
