Dietary Fiber and C-Reactive Protein
I’ve said it before…why all the ruckus trying to find a drug that will lower CRP levels? We already have many natural approaches that will lower CRP levels–exericse, avoiding refined carbs, fish oils… Many clinicians are still not ordering CRP levels for their patients at high risk of heart disease. As far as I’m concerned, the evidence is very strong that CRP is a risk factor for many chronic diseases. I always run CRP levels in my office anytime I requiest bloodwork.
