AND the following specific cardiac markers:
Highly Selective C-Reactive Protein (HsCRP)
C- Reactive Protein increases when there’s inflammation in your body. Not only useful to detect an acute inflammation, but it can also show “silent” chronic inflammation which can arise from autoimmune or other chronic conditions and cause problems over time if undetected.
A common amino acid in your blood. High levels are a risk factor for heart disease.
Highly Sensitive Trop- I (Hs Trop-I)
This is a cardiac-specific biomarker test used for cardiovascular risk stratification. We are now able to accurately predict who is likely to be at risk of cardiac events.
