Here are the differences between a regular CRP test and high sensitivity CRP test

Header

CRP stands for C-reactive protein, which is a marker for inflammation in the body. There are two different types of CRP tests: regular CRP (c-CRP) and high-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP), here you will know the difference between them.

Regular CRP

Regular CRP test is mainly used to detect acute inflammatory conditions, such as infections, injuries or diseases that can cause inflammation. The result of a regular CRP test is measured in milligrams per liter (mg/L).

High-sensitivity CRP

High-sensitivity CRP test is more sensitive than the regular CRP test and can detect lower levels of CRP in the blood. It is primarily used as a marker of cardiovascular health and can indicate risk of cardiovascular disease. High-sensitivity CRP test is performed in the same way as the regular CRP test, but the results are measured in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL).

So, the difference between high-sensitivity CRP and regular CRP lies in their sensitivity and use. Regular CRP is mainly used to detect acute inflammation, while high-sensitivity CRP is more useful for assessing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
