I was ordered this test to see how high my levels are for possible Fibromyalgia.

I was reading online that it can be an indicator for future heart risks, like CAD, etc.

I was just wondering if anyone here knew how accurate that was?
and if they've ever been testing for CRP, when they've had heart problems.

I was told by my cardiologist that the only thing ive got against me at the time is pre-diabetes, and being obese. both of which im working on.

this is probably all my health anxiety getting the better of me.


thanks.

mel. diabetes, and obesity go hand in hand with heart issues. my surgeon, who is the 2nd best in Australasia said to me, 'your heart attack and surgery, mainly due to diabetes and smoking'. I will say no more. you know the what happens when you read on line with health anxiety!! relax.
