3. CRP at Baseline

Baseline c-reactive protein is determined by many factors, including blood pressure, lipid levels, age, weight, gender, and whether or not a person smokes. Genetic variations also play a role, and twin studies demonstrate that there is an inherited component to baseline c-reactive protein levels that is independent of age and weight. The results of normal c-reactive protein tests vary.
