    Our heart is one of the most important organs that is working non-stop. It pumps blood and oxygen to keep other organs and our body functioning.

    When the heart does not get enough care, it may stop functioning, which is deadly for any individual. If we ignore heart health, severe problems like heart blockage, heart failure, heart attacks, and other related issues may crop up. The diseases also become common after you turn 50.

    Different types of heart diseases and conditions affect the heart. While any individual can get heart disease, there are certain risk factors. Individuals who eat processed, junk, and unhealthy food containing oil and fat are at high risk. They get fat deposited in the walls of the arteries, which eventually block the blood flow.

    Preexisting health conditions, physical inactivity, smoking or alcohol abuse, and unhealthy diet; all these factors can combine together to increase the risk of heart disease. Family history is also responsible for deteriorating cardiovascular health.

    You should book a heart checkup package and get assessed for cardiovascular diseases. A basic heart test package consists of the following important tests:

    • HS- CRP (High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein): A higher level of C-Reactive protein is associated with heart failure, heart blockage, and stroke. This test can determine the protein level to assess the risk of developing these diseases even before symptoms are present.
    • Complete Blood Count (CBC): The result of this test reveals the amount of essential blood components that help the doctor determine the complications and overall health of the patient.
    • Electrolytes-Serum: Electrolytes in the blood help control the heart’s electrical impulses. The test determines the balance of electrolytes in the body.
    • Lipid Profile: Lipid profile plays an essential role in the progression of cardiovascular diseases. This test measures triglyceride (TG) and total cholesterol (TC) levels to determine the chances of a heart attack or similar issues.

    Be it on symptoms or as part of regular health checkups after a certain age, a full heart checkup is essential. Some common signs that indicate an individual may be suffering from heart issues include:

    • Tightness of chest
    • Irregular heartbeats
    • Fatigue
    • Swollen legs, ankles, and feet
    • Easily running out of breath
    • A feeling of discomfort in the body
    • Numbness in legs or arms
    • Pale lips

    One or many symptoms may appear together. The patient should be aware of the symptoms, and if any arise, they should monitor their health closely.

    Upon visiting a general practitioner, the doctor may prescribe a basic heart test package and recommend the patient to a cardiologist, depending upon the results. The test can be done at any Apollo 24|7 labs near you.

    The doctor may ask the patient to fast for eight to ten or ten to twelve hours before the test. Fasting ensures accurate test results. No other preparation is required for the test. Test reports are available within 72 hours after the test is done. Since medication can affect the test results, the patient must inform the doctor about all the medicines they take.
