Hi all,
    I just had some blood work done and was wondering if anyone had this test done and what the results mean. I know its an indicator for heart disease but thats all I know. My mother had diabetic related heart issues and I figured I should get the test. Any info would be helpful.

Hi Bojalaisgirl

I had a full Lipo screen done , including the CRP. Mine was .8. These tests fall under the genetic screening breakdown of the lipid profiles, it is far more detailed that just getting your total, LDL,HDL and Try numbers

under 1.0 is considered low
1.0-3.0 average
over 3.0 high
Stats:
Age: 52
PSA (2008)=1.9
Biopsy on Jan 09, 2009
One (1) out of twelve (12) cores was positive, plus external nodule found
