London Cardiac Health Test
A Cardiac Health Test package is used to give an insight into how well your heart is functioning. These blood tests for heart health included in the Cardiac Health package are used to provide information about your risk of getting heart and blood vessel disease.
There are a huge number of heart health blood tests, but London Blood Tests offers a special Cardiac Health test package which includes:
D Dimer test to help identify blood clotting problems. If the results of a D Dimer test are positive there might be a chance of a recent blood clot formation and other serious issues. This D Dimer test checks for a small protein being part of fibrin degradation products (FDPs). D dimer test is useful for doctors to reach a diagnosis given that it indicates blood clotting in your body.
A CTNL blood test is used for measuring the level of troponin in your blood. Troponin is a kind of protein found in the muscle of your heart, normally not found in the blood. When damage to the heart muscles happens, troponin is sent into the blood. This meaning when heart damage increases, greater amounts of troponin are released into the blood.
NT-PROBNP is a natriuretic peptide substance made by the heart. Usually, in the bloodstream are found small levels of NT-PROBNP, if the NT-PROBNP test result is higher it means your heart isn’t pumping as much blood as needed. This condition is also known as heart failure.
