Obesity has been associated with elevated levels of C‐reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation and predictor of cardiovascular risk. The objective of this systematic review and meta‐analysis was to estimate the associations between obesity and CRP according to sex, ethnicity and age. MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched through October 2011. Data from 51 cross‐sectional studies that used body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC) or waist‐to‐hip ratio (WHR) as measure of… Expand
Correlation of C-reactive protein level and obesity in Chinese adults and children: A meta-analysis

TLDR
This meta-analysis evaluated the correlations between C-reactive protein (CRP) and obesity in Chinese adults and children using a random-effects model and found significant correlation was found. Expand
Dietary inflammatory index in relation to obesity and body mass index: a meta-analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that adherence to high DII score increased BMI and obesity, and more prospective studies in different populations are needed to better clarify this relation. Expand
C-Reactive Protein and Cardiovascular Disease in East Asians: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Although East Asians have low CRP levels, this meta-analysis shows that elevatedCRP levels were significantly associated with an increased risk of stroke, primarily ischemic stroke. Expand
C-reactive protein concentration and risk of selected obesity-related cancers in the Women’s Health Initiative
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that elevated CRP is not a major risk factor for these obesity-related cancers (ovarian or kidney cancers, or multiple myeloma) among postmenopausal women. Expand
A Dietary Inflammatory Index and associations with C-reactive protein in a general adult population
TLDR
The DII was not associated with CRP in this cross-sectional study and understanding the temporal relationship between diet and the inflammatory process is an important area for future research. Expand
Ability of adiposity indicators to identify elevated high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in young adults.
TLDR
WHR showed the least discriminatory ability for correctly identifying individuals with elevated hs-CRP, and the small differences observed among the adiposity indices hinder the recommendation of a single best adiposity measure as predictor of low-grade inflammatory levels. Expand
Markers of Chronic Inflammation in Overweight and Obese Individuals and the Role of Gender: A Cross-Sectional Study of a Large Cohort
TLDR
Inflammatory markers are significantly higher in subjects with abnormal compared to normal BMI, and this difference was found to be greater in women than in men. Expand
The Correlation Between Adiponectin Levels With C-Reactive Protein in Adult Obesity
TLDR
The mean adiponectin level in type II obese is lower than type I obese group, and the mean CRP levels are high in all population, which indicates that obesity in adult obese individual is higher than in other population. Expand
Anxiety, C-reactive protein, and obesity in NHANES 1999–2004
TLDR
Examination of data for 1,439 participants of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 1999–2004 found no association was found between anxiety or depression and CRP in unadjusted or multivariable-adjusted logistic regression analyses, nor was there evidence of moderation by continuous BMI, BMI class, or obesity.

Circulating C reactive protein in osteoarthritis: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Low-grade systemic inflammation may play a greater role in symptoms rather than radiographic changes in OA, as well as the correlation between circulating CRP levels and OA phenotypes. Expand

Association between C-reactive protein and adiposity in women.
TLDR
It is suggested that CRP is causally and positively related to BMI in women and that this is mainly due to fat mass, while results in men were not significant. Expand
Association between C-reactive protein and features of the metabolic syndrome: a population-based study.
TLDR
The data suggest that a variety of features of the metabolic syndrome are associated with a systemic inflammatory response. Expand
Relation of C-reactive protein to abdominal adiposity.
TLDR
Clinical measurements of abdominal adiposity readily provide data elucidating the systemic inflammatory state of patients and can help guide intensity of lifestyle modifications, thus leading to reduction of this inflammation. Expand
Relationship between leptin and C-reactive protein in young Finnish adults.
TLDR
Leptin, obesity, and oral contraceptive use in women were the main factors related to CRP and the relation between leptin and CRP was independent of obesity and cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
The relationship between simple anthropometric indices and C-reactive protein: ethnic and gender differences.
TLDR
C-reactive protein levels were significantly lower in Chinese compared with Europeans, but this difference disappeared after correction for either BMI or WC, and gender significantly modified the relationship between CRP and WC. Expand
Sex differences in the relation of body composition to markers of inflammation.
TLDR
Adiposity is strongly associated with low-grade systemic inflammation in men and in women but the association is considerably stronger in women, especially for CRP, so weight reduction as a means to prevent a state of subclinical inflammation might be particularly effective in women. Expand
C-reactive protein, adiposity and cardiovascular risk factors in a Mediterranean population
TLDR
CRP distribution and correlates are very similar to those reported previously in spite of the different lifestyle and nutritional habits, and the lower rates of cardiovascular diseases in the population. Expand
The implication of obesity and central fat on markers of chronic inflammation: The ATTICA study.
TLDR
A relationship between central adiposity and inflammation process, irrespective of age and other potential confounders, was more prominent than the relationship between total obesity and inflammation. Expand
Relationship of C-reactive protein with components of the metabolic syndrome in normal-weight and overweight elderly.
TLDR
The data suggest that the role of CRP in the metabolic syndrome is modified by the amount of body fat, and this role is similar in men, although less pronounced than in women. Expand
C-Reactive Protein Concentration is More Strongly Related to Metabolic Syndrome in Women Than in Men
TLDR
CRP concentrations are closely related to the MS-like state in both sexes, but an increase in CRP concentration associated with risk factor-clustering is more pronounced in women, particularly non-smokers. Expand
