Heart Health

Blood and urine lab tests are used to find out your risk of heart and blood vessel disease. The results, along with your health history, help your health care team create the best plan of care for you.

Creatine kinase

Optimal range: 24 - 204 U/L

Creatine kinase (CK) is an enzyme that our muscles release into the bloodstream in response to physical damage. CK tests are often run to diagnose a heart attack or determine the extent of a sports related injuy. 



Troponin T, High Sensitivity

Optimal range: 0 - 13 ng/liter

Troponin T, High Sensitivity (hs-TnT) is an independent prognostic marker that aids in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) in an acute setting (>22 ng/L for males and >14 ng/L for females), and there is literature supporting its use to assess relative risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and adverse cardiovascular events (≥6 ng/L for males and females).
