The trajectory of high sensitivity C-reactive protein in 6349 Chinese adults. Hs-CRP level during 2013–2015 was classified into 3 levels: low (< 1.0 mg/L), moderate (1.0–3.0 mg/L), and high (≥3.0 mg/L) based on a statement by American Heart Association. We named four hs-CRP trajectories during 2013–2015 as following: “low-stable” (hs-CRP concentration was low in 2013 and maintained at low concentration in 2014 and 2015), “moderate-fluctuated” (hs-CRP concentration was moderate in 2013, then increased to high concentration in 2014, and decreased to low concentration in 2015), “high-decreased” (hs-CRP concentration was high in 2013 but decreased to moderate concentration in 2014 and 2015), and “moderate-increased (hs-CRP concentration was moderate in 2013 and increased to high concentration in 2014 and 2015)”
