Details

The CRP, hs blood test determines whether a high or increasing amount of CRP in your blood suggests an acute infection or inflammation. In severe cases of inflammation, c-reactive protein increases. Therefore, CRP tests are ordered when a risk of acute inflammation (from an infection after surgery for example) is present, or suspected based on symptoms. This blood test can also be ordered to help evaluate conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and it is often repeated to determine whether treatment is effective (this is helpful for inflammation problems since CRP levels drop as inflammation subsides). CRP blood tests can additionally be used as an early detection system for possible infections in patients who have healing wounds, burns, surgical cuts or incisions, or who have just had an organ transplant. Homocysteine is an amino acid that can be linked to several vitamins like folic acid, B6 and B12. Deficiencies of these vitamins may cause elevated levels of homocysteine. Research suggest that people with elevated homocysteine levels have a much greater risk of heart attack or stroke than those with normal levels. Additionally, increased concentrations of homocysteine have been linked to an increase in blood clots, which can lead to strokes, heart attack and blood vessel blockages in any part of the body.
