Heart is the very important part of the body and we should take care of it. So try to eat the kind of foods which provide better efficiency to the heart.You all may know that there are lot of people who suffers from the heart problems only. So we have to eat such kind of diet which has low cholesterol. So we can reduce the chance of the heart attack.
A newer blood test (designed to detect cardiac troponin) is both more sensitive and more specific for heart damage. Cardiac troponins are found only in the heart. Depending on the hospital, either bilgisayar troponin I or troponin T is measured; in general, both work equally well. Current guidelines recommend that several measurements be obtained over a period of 8 to 12 hours after admission. Because there is a lag from the onset of heart damage to appearance of troponin in the blood, serial monitoring is important to avoid missing a heart attack. Patients with elevated cardiac troponin blood levels have likely suffered heart damage and are at increased cardiac risk. A lack of troponin (or any of the other proteins mentioned above) does not demonstrate an absence of heart disease, only the absence of heart damage. Further testing is necessary after the blood testing to determine if the chest discomfort is a warning sign of a heart attack (see also the Cardiology Patient Page by Ornato and Hand. Warning signs of a heart attack. Circulation. 2001;103:e124–125). This testing may occur in the hospital or in your doctor’s office.
