Troponin I Levels Normal Range
Troponin is an enzyme found in heart muscle, which is involved in the muscle fiber's ability to contract. It is extremely specific to heart muscle, and hence if levels are elevated in the blood, it points very confidently toward heart muscle damage as a cause of patient's symptoms. In fact, it is the test that is used to definitively ...Read more
Had a troponin test come back positive at. 07 after going to the dr with chest pain. I went to ER same night & it was in the normal range. What gives?
Testing method: Different testing methods will give different results for the same analyte. The doctor's office may have use a point of care test and such tests are less accurate than those done in a hospital laboratory. ...Read more
Troponin: Troponin level normally would be virtually undetectable in a normal 22 y/o male ...Read more
If multiple troponin levels are normal, how unlikely is a person to be having acute HF & Conjestive HF?
Troponin: These levels are usually elevated in acute MI and may not be elevated in CHF ...Read more
What method was used for the test? What is reference range for the test? Different methods give different results. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.
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.

My CPK level on blood work was 93. Is that high or normal? Mb-cpk was 0.9. And troponin 1 was 0.01
Normal: All normal. These are cardiac enzymes docs use to see if there is injury to the heart muscle. ...Read more
What does a Troponin level of <0.02 mean? I had a Troponin I blood test done. I am wondering if this is normal?
Troponin: Normal troponin levels are zero or close to it. Less than. 02 should be normal. ...Read more
I have had some lab work to find out my troponin levels and they were. 13 and the other one is. 18 is this normal or are these values high?
That depends: On the type of troponin level tested: trop-i or trop-t. Generally anything 0-0.1micrograms/l is within normal range for trop-t, trop I is <10 micrograms/l. It also depends highly on the labs "normal ranges" as these differ from lab to lab. Always good to stick with the same lab and methodology to follow trends in labs. If at the er for chest pain to rule out mi, they would look at ekg's too. ...Read more
My father had chest pain 2 days ago Troponin was elevated but no MI. Levels are still not in range. What can cause this?!
Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/007452.htm
The website given above provides a list of the conditions, other than MI that are associated with elevated troponin. Your father should discuss matter with his doctor and follow the advice. ...Read more
Troponin I result of <0.02. Lab reference range: 0.00 to 0.05. EKG: normal. Troponin results normal?
Yep: As normal as it can be ;) cheers C ...Read more
Will the damaged heart muscle be rebuild / restored automatically when the elevated (3.50ng) troponin I value to the normal level (0.27ng)?
No, resumption of normal troponin levels does not mean the heart tissue is restored.
If the heart muscle is damaged during a heart attack, scar tissue will form from the damaged tissue. Medications such as ace inhibitors can help the remodeling/healing process of the remaining tissue after a heart attack which can be beneficial. The scar tissue remains. ...Read more
Is it normal for my heart rate to drop while resting? 26, overweight, non-smoker, and no health issues. Heart is fine. Troponin I levels < 0.02. My heart rate will drop down to as low as 53 while resting. Shouod I be concerned?
Can esophogeal spasm cause troponin t levels of 0.28, 0.26 and 0.24 over a 12 hour period and subtle abnormality on EKG one time and then normal ekg?
No: This could be mild heart attack. You may wanna consult a cardiologist without further delay. ...Read more
D-dimer@cutoff of reference range (100ng/ml is both the value and cutoff), same for troponin I (.05ng/ml).Normal platelet, INR, APTT. Some petechia. DIC?
Lab cutoff: 31 F from MO asks cuff off values 4 clotting related lab & DIC. This is complex issue & question & cannot be answered without knowing a lot more about u. Ur Drs know u best so ask them. Why were tests being done in first place? 4 example. Are you pregnant, had previous deep vein thrombosis, taking ASA or other meds. U can never send us 2 much info. Better to do consult with expert here. ...Read more
If your troponin level is normal, does it mean that your heart valve is allright & not infected by bacterial endocarditis? Ty
Not necessarily: Elevated troponin is most often associated with heart muscle damage, as in a heart attack. Heart valves may be damaged (by infection or other processes) that may not lead to an elevated troponin. An ultrasound of the heart should help detect important damage to any involved valves. ...Read more
Thrombosis rca at p/mortem. No heart attack. Deceased died from sepsis complications. How possible to hav thrombosis? No H/Attack. Troponin level normal?
DIC? Hypotensive?: Hi. Sepsis is awful as you know from this case. Sepsis is accompanied by hypotension (low blood pressure), poor organ perfusion, and often disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC = initiation of clotting cascade). While sepsis is the killer, it's not hard to picture the low blood pressure, poor perfusion, and activated clotting pathway causing a thrombosis in the RCA right at time of death. ...Read more
Does normal Troponin blood level, chest X-Ray, EKG & cardiac exercise stress test rule out any cardiovascular cause for my chest pain?
What could <0.10 Troponin I signify? I was released from the hospital with this level after ekg (w/pvc) normal sinus rhythm, CT, Chest X-ray
Troponin: Chest pain related tests include checking the blood for release of heart muscle cell Troponin and CPK. Release of these substances occur when the heart is damaged by decreased blood flow from a blockage in the pipe supplying blood to the heart, direct trauma or from inflammation of the muscle, etc. The rate of release and amount determines the significance of the release to guide management. ...Read more
Damaged heart muscle:
If heart muscle cells r damaged, troponin will leak into the blood + levels will rise. However, the muscle damage may be caused by several diseases, not the least of which is coronary artery disease (c article via link below 4 details) http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/pmc1860726/
bottom line? Troponin levels r a sensitive + specific indicator of heart muscle damage from any cause. Dr mike. ...Read more
Heart muscle enzyme: Troponin is a heart enzyme that is released in the blood when the heart is under strain. Elevated levels of this enzyme in the setting of chest pain and ekg changes usually mean that an individual is having a blockage in the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart. ...Read more
CPK: This suggests that his skeletal muscles are the source of the ck total because the more cardiac specific enzyme components are not elevated. ...Read more
Yes and no: Troponins as you likely know by asking this question is an enzyme liberated into the bloodstream by damaged myocardial cells. While pneumonia and a myocardial event are technically separate entities. They can be linked. Patients with pneumococcal pneumonia are at substantial risk for a concurrent acute cardiac event, such as mi, serious arrhythmia, or new or worsening chf. ...Read more
