C-reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of subclinical inflammation. Elevated CRP is associated with a 2- to 5-fold increased risk of coronary events.1,2 CRP is inversely related with insulin sensitivity,3 directly related with type 2 diabetes risk,4 and elevated among individuals with excessive body fat.3–5 Fewer data exist on CRP and health for women and race-ethnic minorities, among whom CHD, diabetes, and obesity incidence is rising.6 Also, few studies2,4 have considered the influence of physical activity on associations between CRP and health outcomes.
