Abstract

Summary We divided subjects into hs-CRP of ≤1.0mg/l and >1.0mg/l, and investigated the relationship between hs-CRP and basic attributes, lifestyle and health checkup test results. In particular, hs-CRP increased significantly as BMI increased, and hs-CRP of >1.0mg/l was seen in about 40% of people with BMI of ≥25kg/m2 and 75% with BMI of ≥30kg/m2. Persons with 3 or more abnormalities in BMI, blood pressure, serum lipid and glucose were found in 20.0% of those with hs-CRP >1.0mg/l, while 4.3% in hs-CRP≤1.0mg/l. The present findings have suggested that hs-CRP>1.0mg/l can be an indicator for obesity-related risks in male Japanese.
