Your heart is one of the important organs in your body. It’s responsible for pumping blood, which carries oxygen and nutrients to all the cells in your body. That’s why it’s so important to get regular heart checkups to ensure your heart is healthy.
There are a few different tests that your doctor may recommend to check on your heart health.
The LIPID PROFILE test measures the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. Cholesterol is fat that can build up in your arteries and cause heart disease. Triglycerides are another type of fat which increases the risk for heart disease.
The TROPONIN I test measures the protein level called troponin in your blood. Troponin is released into the blood in case of damage caused in heart muscles.
The hs-CRP test measures the level of a protein called high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in your blood. High levels of hsCRP are a sign of inflammation in the body.
Note: 12 hours fasting before a heart test is essential.
