Because of the inflammatory component of atherosclerosis, elevated CRP level has been linked with cardiovascular disease. However, based on the current available data it cannot be considered an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
I would write down your questions for you Cardiologist and if you don't understand his response please ask him to put it in layman's terms.
Take care,
