A blood “marker” called C-Reactive Protein (CPR) test is used to check for increased risks of premature heart disease and thickened arteries to the heart called atherosclertosis.
Doctor James Wright - TVs original medic, discusses the results from a new study in America which reveal that CPR is really an indication of general inflammation, and in itself does not cause heart disease.
Nevertheless, many doctors carry out the test routinely, and if elevated, they will treat possible heart disease. Lifestyle changes head the list.
