All About CRP

woman holding her templesCRP, also known as C-Reactive Protein, is naturally occurring in your body. Typically, the levels are only tested if you’re seeing a cardiologist or have had problems with your heart in the past as a high level may be indicative of a heart attack or problem.

However, more and more studies have shown that high CRP levels point to inflammation occurring at any place in the body—not just the heart.

CRP is a protein produced by your liver and can increase if you’re dealing with a bacterial infection, diabetes and more. In fact, the highest I’ve ever seen CRP go was in a young woman who was dealing with anxiety, depression, and yeast overgrowth. This individual seemed fine and healthy, but her CRP was truly off the charts—scary!

So, can you get tested?

Absolutely, but if you’re at a regular doctor’s office, you may have to insist. That’s because traditional medical doctors tend to still relate CRP testing to individuals who may be predisposed to a heart condition.

At Taste Life Nutrition, we’ve tested patients of all ages, races, and genders and have found that your CRP levels can be high due to a number of things—not just caused by your heart.

  • Unexplained exhaustion
  • Low-grade fever
  • Chills
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • nausea, loss of appetite, and indigestion
