The inflammatory marker high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is associated with symptoms of depression.1- 3 A recent study reported that elevated levels of hs-CRP in the general population are associated with specific depressive symptoms of low energy, sleep disturbance, and appetite disturbance3; however, common general psychological distress symptoms (GPDS) were not investigated. We tested the association between levels of hs-CRP and GPDS in the general population.
