Re: [IP] Cardiac CRP?

CRP is increased inany inflammatory change or necrosis. CRP precedes the
rise in ESR (Sed. Rate), with recovery, disappearance of CRP  precedes the
return to normal of the ESR. CRP disappears when inflammatory process is
suppressed by steroids or salicylates.
Acute myocardial infarction, CRP appears within 24-48 hrs begins to fallby
third day and becomes negative after 1-2 weeks.CRP reflects rheumatic
activity more promptly than the ESR. Also bacterial infection will increase
the CRP.

If you are worried then call your doctor and tell him/her. If your only
abnormal test were the cholesterol and CRP  , then you could just have a
infection or a lab error :)
just about everybody has a high cholesterol, it's the American Way!!!:)
If you are on insulin , then 7.0 A1C is as low as you need to go.
