I have a very high hs-CRP level. What does that mean?
Patients with hs-CRP > 3.0 mg/L, are probably at a high risk for developing coronary artery disease if other risk factors are also present.
If you want to estimate your risk for heart disease, you may want to look here:
Since you seem to have a markedly elevated hs-CRP (greater than 10.0 mg/L), that does not seem to be explained by other risk factors developing heart disease or stroke, you should be evaluated for other problems such as autoimmune diseases, other infectious diseases or even cancer (I hope not).
Hope this helps,
