One Blood Test That Can Save Your Life

One Blood Test That Can Save Your Life

I remember the day in early 2012 when I was watching The Doctor Oz Show episode The Best New Test To Predict Heart Disease. Dr. Oz caught my attention when he said, “What if I told you one simple test could predict your risk for a heart attack. It’s called CRP, C-reactive protein.”

The C-reactive protein (CRP) test measures the level of inflammation in the body. Inflammation is said to contribute to almost every modern disease, including thyroid disease. A light bulb went off in my head when I recalled that a CRP test had been done for me a year before. I was in the habit of saving my blood work and I remember seeing CRP but I wasn’t aware of its significance in my life until that TV show.

Dr. Oz explained that there are three CRP Risk Levels:

Low risk: less than 1.0 mg/L

Average risk: 1.0 – 3.0 mg/L

High risk: above 3.0 mg/L

A warning bell shot off through my body and I ran to my file where I save my lab results. There it was…my CRP level was 5.1 MG/L (high risk).

Dr. Mark Hyman is on the Medical Advisory Board at The Doctor Oz Show. I’m happy to have him here at Hypothyroid Mom to give us more information about this important blood test.

Are you aware that you have the option to order your own lab tests? A trusted brand that I use and love where you can order your own lab tests like the C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Blood Test yourself is True Health Labs. Use coupon code Limited_5 for 5% off an order for Hypothyroid Mom fans.
