can anyone tell me the significance of the hsCRP test. I forgot to ask in my last post. but the CRP test I had a few month ago was high so my dr ran the hsCRP it came out to be 5.8 but she didn't say what that meant.

Hi Mawmaw:

We like the website:  www.Labtestsonline.org to look up bloodwork.

 

Here is a link to the hs-CRP (hs stands for highly sensative) you refer to: http://www.labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/hscrp/sample.html

I hope this helps.

Blessings!
