Hi, I was comparing various abnormal results with a friend today - my BNP is 763.3.My friends is 5000 yes Five thousand! I tried to find info online and to no avail. Two questions 1- does 763 mean I am in heart failure? Question 2. Is the prognosis for my friend as dreadful as I think it might be. Thank you in advance for any information at all. xo
Question about BNP: Hi, I was comparing... - AF Association
I had to look this up. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) - A blood test measures levels of a protein called BPN that your heart and blood vessels make. Under 100 is normal and levels are higher if you have heart failure.
Thanks for the explanation! I hadn’t a clue what it meant.
Thanks I was just about to do likewise.
In answer to your questions skipabeat (or not in fact) all things are relative. Perhaps a bad score is 20,000.
I've been diagnosed with HF and a letter from my cardiologist to my GP last year stated: "BNP is very significantly elevated at 582pg/mL". I took this to mean that my BNP is (was) abnormally high.
Oh phew for a minute there I thought this related to a far right political party
Hi IanMK, I am also trying to to figure BNP numbers, mine is 763 ish but my sisters is 5000 I am very concerned. Very hard to figure out.
Thank you for your info. My test only gave me the BNP but not my nBNP pro I think one needs both to get an accurate reading. It still confuses me. Your are right in suggesting having a chat with someone qualified. Grrrr frustration plus.
