For those of you who are concerned about your heart's health, a good test to ask for is the C-Reactive Protein test. This test checks for the amount of inflammation in your body via protein. The test can be a safety measure when it comes to identifying heart problems where there are not other signs.
Seeing as how cardiovascular disease is the number one killer amongst men and women in the USA, we must stay on top of our heart's health. The regular CRP test is pretty inexpensive, costing as little as $10. The test, though known about, is still not a mandatory test given to check your heart. So, next time you are at the doctor ask for the CRP test. It might save your life.
