Myoglobin is a protein that is present in your skeletal and heart muscles. In case of muscle injuries, the cells release myoglobin in your blood. Severe injuries can increase myoglobin levels, which indicates serious muscle damage.

A healthcare professional can compare the test results with normal myoglobin level. Your doctor can diagnose potential conditions associated with muscular damage upon medical assessment. Higher values of myoglobin level in blood can indicate one of the following conditions:

  • Heart attack
  • Shock
  • Kidney failure
  • Presence of foreign substances in the body
  • High-stress exercises
  • Muscular dystrophy

To identify the actual cause of an increase in these levels, a myoglobin serum test can prove helpful.

Usually, you need to undergo a serum myoglobin evaluation if you face one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Muscular pain
  • Dark-coloured urine
  • Nausea

Your doctor can also recommend a myoglobin blood test if you have a family history of a heart attack. In such scenarios, the presence of myoglobin in your bloodstream elevates to a greater extent.

On the other hand, lower myoglobin levels can help your doctor diagnose muscle and joint disorders such as:

  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Follow your doctor’s guidance and avail the myoglobin serum test at Apollo 24|7 if you notice the symptoms.

The myoglobin serum test involves the process of venepuncture. The testing specialist locates a vein on your arm to draw out the blood. The professional collects the blood sample using a thin needle, which is sent to the lab to establish the amount of myoglobin in your blood.

Sometimes, you might need to undergo a urine test to get an idea of myoglobin levels. Such testing is essential when your doctor suspects possible damage to your kidneys. Generally, people with acute kidney failure need to also undertake a urine test to detect the presence of myoglobin.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Different labs have distinct testing methods that can produce varying normal value ranges. Nevertheless, you can expect the range of 25 to 72 ng/mL to indicate normal myoglobin levels.
Both haemoglobin and myoglobin are proteins in your bloodstream. Haemoglobin is a heterotetrameric oxygen transport protein, while myoglobin is a monomeric protein. The presence of myoglobin is mainly in the muscle tissues. It serves as a storage site for oxygen in the cells.
Myoglobinuria is a condition in which there is a presence of myoglobin in your urine. This disease takes place primarily due to a muscle injury or rhabdomyolysis. The symptoms of this condition are dark urine, delirium, swollen muscles, fever, nausea, and myalgia.
The protein myoglobin functions to store oxygen in your cells. It also provides oxygen to your body’s working muscles. The myoglobin levels are different in distinct species. For instance, mammals like whales have higher levels of myoglobin than other organisms.
Rhabdomyolysis is treatable at home if you follow proper medical protocols. First, you need to undergo a test to identify the myoglobin level in blood. Next, begin by increasing the amount of fluid intake in your body. Depending on your condition, you may need IV fluids or hospitalisation.
The impact of myoglobin in your blood can be toxic. If you do not treat the possible myoglobin-related condition of rhabdomyolysis, it can lead to kidney damage or failure.
