    Just received my high sensitivity C-reactive protein results of 0.97mg/L

    Obviously I’d be surprised if anyone cares but I’m over the moon with that. The healthy range is between 0-5 so less than 1 is pretty bloomin’ good. Unfortunately I don’t have a prior measurement with which to compare, but I’m very sure it would have been much higher prior to diagnosis.

    Just thought I’d share with those who have a passing interest in these types of data :D

    Thanks. I’m very happy. In addition to my previous HOMA-IR I really feel like I have been doing everything right all this time.

    CAC scan next year perhaps...

    Excuse my ignorance but what does hs CRP measure?

    FANTASTIC WORK!

    Seriously, it goes to show what some work on your nutrition will do Jim! Always an inspiration with this data and it gives so much optimism to people too. Knowing how things were going for you on the conventional advice it was probably through the roof.

    C-Reactive Protein, it's a measure of inflammation that is present in the body if memory serves me right.

    C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein released by the liver in response to inflammation in the body. High sensitivity (hs) is the type of testing used to measure it. Low CRP is a marker of low atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease risk. It’s not infallible but is a good cheap method of testing. That is my basic understanding anyway.

    EDIT: cross posted with @Caeseji - thank you for the sentiment. Much appreciated.
