Data were collected by using the set of the self-reported questionnaire consisted of socio-demographic and the walking time for the past 7 days. The sample blood test was taken to check for hs-CRP level. Results Walking time spent in minutes was found to be significantly inverse associated with the hs-CRP level (p = 0.040) among obese women. Conclusion The increase in walking time spent can help reduce the hs-CRP level, therefore reduce the risk for CVD.
