C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein made by the liver. The CRP levels used in the blood test to the diagnosis of inflammation in the body, particularly in patients with an infectious disease.
According to the article of Healthline in examing the levels of CRP in Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, " Normal CRP levels are below 3.0 mg/L., and "A high-sensitivity CRP test can detect levels below 10.0 mg/L. This kind of test is performed primarily to determine risk for cardiovascular disease".
In most cases in a healthy individual, the immune system can easily eradicate all foreign invaders and the wound is recovered within days and weeks.
Symptoms of the acute infection include gastrointestinal discomforts, such as congestion vomiting or nausea, and diarrhea, short term joint or muscle pain, fever, headache, skin rash and cough, Some patients with acute infection also experience symptoms of swollen lymph nodes, an indication of the body in fighting infection.
In chronic infection, the symptoms are most vague or no specific symptoms, including bronchitis and asthma, persistent low-grade chronic joint and muscle pain, or swelling and the alternations between diarrhea and constipation, bloating, or heartburn, In other words, the symptoms are totally depended on the location of the low-grade inflammation.
Conventionally, patients with elevated levels of CRP are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
On finding a potential compound for the treatment of diseases associated with inflammation, researchers investigated the potential of low-calorie cranberry juice (LCCJ) on lowering the cardiometabolic risk.
According to the results of the study, serum C-reactive protein (CRP) was, lower for individuals consuming LCCJ than individuals consuming the placebo beverage.
associated with the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) were all reduced by the application of LCCJ.
