I took the Life Extension blood test for men just received the results.  My C-Reactive Protein is "sky-high".  What are the best supplements and dosages get this down into normal range?  Thanks!

Welcome to the Forums J. Sigmon.

What about all the other things on the blood test? Are they all in the normal range?

What is sky high, moderate and low? The CRP range listed on the form is 0.00 to 3.00. Does that make my 2.22 excellent, a concern, or almost in the danger zone?

Zork, this is from the LEF protocols:


C-Reactive Protein (CRP) (Cardiac) (High Sensitivity)

This test is used to assess risk of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease.

Reference Ranges:
Low risk < 1.0 mg/L
Average1.0–3.0 mg/L
High risk > 3.0 mg/L
LE’s Optimal Ranges:
Men:< 0.55 mg/L
Women:< 1.0 mg/L

I am a bit confused how to compare reference ranges. LabCorp gives (as my lab in Switzerland) <5 mg/L. Which lab gives 3.00 in Zork's post? Btw i was at 0.1 one year ago and going to retest soon.

albedo - You can't really compare ref. ranges from lab to lab. It's like comparing apples to oranges. You can always give our health advisor doctors a call to go over your lab results.
