About

The heart is responsible for circulating blood and delivering oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body, maintaining correct functioning. Cardiovascular illnesses influence the heart's function and structure. 

Therefore, it is absolutely imperative to understand your heart health. This will aid in preventing heart disease in the long run. Even if you are diagnosed, a cardiac test can help you keep a check on your vitals to take better care of your body. 

Apollo 24|7 offers Basic Heart Care package that will cover the following tests:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC)
  • Cholesterol test
  • Triglycerides test
  • HDL Cholesterol test
  • LDL cholesterol test
  • Non-HDL Cholesterol test

These are some of the basic cardiac blood tests that help detect any underlying cardiovascular diseases. Some examples of these diseases include:

  • Arrhythmias
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Rheumatic heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Vascular disease (blood vessel disease)
  • Coronary artery disease (narrowing of arteries)
  • Heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy)
  • Aorta disease and Marfan syndrome
  • Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism
  • Heart attack
  • Heart valve disease
  • Pericardial diseases

Risk factors that largely contribute to these diseases can include:

  • Age
  • Uncontrolled stress, depression, and anger
  • Alcohol use
  • High C-reactive protein
  • Genetics
  • Obesity (having a BMI greater than 25)
  • Physical inactivity
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet
  • Post-Menopausal
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Unhealthy cholesterol numbers

A cardiac blood test can help figure out several crucial things in order to make sure that you get the correct type of assistance. This can range from lifestyles changes such:

  • Changes in diet, like eating lesser calories and more lean protein and legumes
  • Incorporation of an exercise routine
  • Cutting out trans-fats, simple carbohydrates, high-sodium foods, etc.
  • Cutting out alcohol and cigarettes
  • Managing stress and seeking mental health assistance
  • In severe cases, undergoing surgery such as bypass surgery or a heart valve surgery. 

However, the most common way to treat cardiac diseases is through medication. A cardiac blood test can indicate high cholesterol, Triglycerides, or Haemoglobin. Once your healthcare provider has the results, they can prescribe medication accordingly.

Nevertheless, it is crucial to watch out for the following signs:

  • Chest pains
  • Fainting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling in the ankles, neck, upper abdomen, throat or arm.
  • Abnormal heart beats
  • Numbness
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Indigestion-like symptoms
  • Rapid weight gain

In case of any of these or similar symptoms, one should consult their physician. Healthcare providers often immediately order a range of cardiac tests.
