Stop smoking, it's killing you. Go see a Cardiologist; your WBC count and very high hs-CRP level indicates you're a prime candidate for cardiovascular disease - heart attack or stroke. Check the WBC subtypes for those that have abnormal readings. Probably why your doctor ordered the hs-CRP as verification. One good things out all of this is your diabetes appears to be under control.
