"Find the root cause, reduce the pain - Test for body inflammation now!"
Are you tired of wondering if your body is undergoing inflammation? Do you want to know the root cause of your health problems? Look no further! Our CPR Inflammation Test is here to provide you with accurate and reliable results.
Our test measures the levels of C-reactive protein (CPR) in your blood, a proven biomarker of inflammation. Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but when it becomes chronic, it can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes.
Why test for hs-CRP?
A CRP test can show if there is high or low inflammation in the body. High inflammation can be a sign of serious health conditions, such as cancer and heart disease, and may require further investigation. Low inflammation may not have obvious symptoms, but can still be a sign of health problems like type 2 diabetes, obesity, or brain diseases. A CRP test can help guide preventive measures or monitor the effectiveness of treatments.
Conditions associated with low grade inflammation
Allergies and sinusitis
Asthma, emphysema & bronchitis
Dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, acne
Diabetes and obesity
Inflammatory liver disease
Chronic fatigue syndrome & fibromyalgia
Neurogenerative diseases such as MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s
Attention deficit disorder and autism
Irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammatory bowel disease and cystitis
Autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis
Sample requirements and test turnaround
- It is a finger-prick blood sample test that involves collecting a small amount of blood from the fingertip. This test is quick and convenient.
- Blood samples are often taken in the morning before eating or drinking anything to avoid interference with the results.
- Results are available within 7-10 working days of receipt of
How often should you test? Find out with us."
Our test is simple and painless, all you need is a small blood sample, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our state-of-the-art technology ensures fast and accurate results, so you can take the necessary steps to improve your health.
A single hs-CRP test will show the level of inflammation in your body at that time. To see if lifestyle changes are working, another test can be taken later. For example, a baseline test at the start of a dietary program and another after three months can be used to monitor progress. It’s important to keep other things, like supplements and medications, the same when taking the test.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to take control of your health. Take our CRP Inflammation Test today and get the peace of mind you deserve. Order now and receive a detailed report of your results, along with personalized recommendations from our team of experts.

Frequently Asked Questions
C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute inflammatory protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation. It is considered a non-specific “marker” for disease and infection. Inflammatory markers are known as acute phase reactants, others include erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and ferritin. They can be used separately or together to monitor a person’s health.
High sensitive C-reactive protein.
They both measure the same protein, but hs-CRP is a more sensitive test enabling low grade inflammation to be detected. Low grade inflammation may contribute to obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerotic vascular disease, and other chronic health conditions.
hs-CRP is a test to check for low level inflammation in the body. It is used to predict the risk of heart problems and is part of a heart health check. People with high hs-CRP results have a higher chance of developing heart disease. The test can also be used to monitor a person's health and check if their treatments are working.
Yes, evidence suggests that inflammation may result in response to elevated IgG food antibodies and a diet based on the elimination of foods showing the highest level of IgG antibodies may contribute to a reduction in inflammation. As such, comparing hs-CRP levels at the beginning and end of an exclusion programme, keeping all other variables such as medications and supplements constant, may be a useful tool to assess the success of an IgG elimination diet along with symptom improvement.
Low grade inflammation may contribute to obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus and atherosclerotic vascular disease.
No, it is just a marker protein that is stimulated in response to inflammation and in itself poses no risk to health.
Do not test when you have an active infection or with a known inflammatory condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and irritable bowel disease (IBD). Your CRP levels will be markedly elevated. CRP can increase up to 1x1000 fold at sites of infection or inflammation.
Levels may rise marginally after eating in response to the subsequent rise in lipid and glucose levels. We suggest taking the test first thing in the morning before food and drink. Consider medication also, see below.
If your results are over 8mg/L, we suggest that you seek medical advice as this level reveals higher grade inflammation. CRP levels will be considered alongside other markers as part of a health profile. Please note that as CRP is a non-specific marker there may be multiple sources of potential inflammation including atherosclerosis, gum disease and viral infection.
A single test will give you a baseline reading of hs-CRP levels, reflecting inflammation in the body at that time and, once lifestyle changes have been implemented, a further test can be used to monitor the effectiveness of the protocol. For example, in order to assess the effectiveness of an IgG based elimination dietary protocol, we recommend taking an initial baseline test at the beginning of your dietary programme and again after three months into the programme to assess progress. Please ensure all other variables such as supplements and medications are constant.
Some medications, such as statins and steroids, will affect your results. If possible, it is recommended to stop the use of asthma inhalers and topical steroid preparations 7 days prior to a test, but not without seeking medical advice first. Some NSAIDs such as naproxen and lumiracoxib may also affect results and high dose aspirin may lower CRP levels, although this has not been noted at lower levels. If your medication regime is constant, you may still choose to test the success of an anti-inflammatory dietary regime or an IgG elevated elimination diet.
Results are available within 7-10 working days.
Detox Your Gut
Looking for a Healthy Kickstart?
Are you feeling sluggish, bloated, and uncomfortable? It's time to give your gut a much-needed detox! Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is a safe and effective way to cleanse your colon and support optimal gut health.
Frequency of colonics - We suggest 3 sessions in a year, 7 to 14 days apart. It also depends on your age, lifestyle habits, and the level of exposure you have to the environmental and chemical toxins.
