Figure 3: Prevalence of abnormal acute phase inflammation at different levels of WBV. CRP: C-reactive protein (mg/L), ESR: erythrocyte sedimentation rate (mm/Hr), WBV: whole blood viscosity (208 Sec-1). Data (n = 9,929) were sorted data by descending level of viscosity and grouped into low (n = 675), normal (n = 8,922) and high (n = 332) group. The fractions of abnormal CRP and ESR in each group were then critically evaluated as per cent prevalence. CRP+ESR indicate both acute phase inflammation markers concomitantly tested positive in a participant.
