Answer

The Reynolds Risk Score (RRS) was developed in 2007 with data from a 10-year study of 24,558 US women without diabetes. In addition to traditional risk factors, the algorithm also includes the emerging risk factor of C-reactive protein (CRP) elevation in its risk calculation. In its initial finding, compared with the FRS-ATP-III, 40-50% of intermediate risk women were reclassified into higher-or-lower risk categories. [7] In 2008, the RRS for men was similarly developed, using data from 10,724 US men. [8]
