AIM We aimed to study the relationship of elevated C reactive protein (CRP) levels (1.0-2.9 or ≥3.0 mg/L) with carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) in Chinese adults with normal low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (<100 mg/dL). METHODS Cross-sectional analysis was performed using 2499 eligible subjects recruited from a single community in Shanghai… CONTINUE READING
