Yes.: Your result is normal. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

When : When someone has a myocardial infarction or a heart attack, a cardiac specific protein called troponin is released into the blood stream. Troponin is released into the blood stream when there is cardiac tissue injury and the troponin levels in the blood can help to detect how severe the damage is. The higher the troponin level, the higher the extent of cardiac damage. A normal troponin level is >0.5 ng/ml.
