Our expert says:
Barlow's Syndrome is a risk for cardiac arrest (very rare). Please refer to the following link for a detailed explanation about Barlow's Syndrome, the treatment and complications thereof: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitral_valve_prolapse
The risks for cardiac disease are as the follows:
* Family history of cardiac disease
* Diabetes melitus
* Hypertension (high blood pressure)
* High cholestrol levels
Discuss these risk factors with your doctor. It does not appear to me that you any of these risk factors.
Please refer to the following link to understand the role of CRP levels: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-reactive_protein
It is a non-spesific marker of cardiovascular disease, as there are many other causes for a raised CRP.
