All I know is that decreased sleep leads to increase in inflammatory markers.

as you know that inflammation leads to increase sleep , why ??
No, I admit to not knowing that.
Maybe you are talking about lethargy and sleepiness due to effect of cytokines on the brain?

I'm working on my senior undergraduate thesis, and I was hoping someone could help me understand what markers can be used to measure inflammation in patients that could be a sign of cardiovascular disease. I've read that neutrophil to leukocyte ratio and WBC count are used, but can anyone elaborate on this for me? Say a patient goes to the doctor for an annual physical. Is looking at NLR or WBC count something a physician would do to determine risk for CVD?
