Hi all. I am new here and might need guidance where to post.
My back ground is... diagnosed with leukaemia last year, had aggressive chemo and a stem cell transplant.
Today I saw a cardiology doctor... which Is why I am now posting here.
My heart has aged due to my treatment. Echo heart test was ok. I suffer from high blood pressure. The main thing that concerns me is that overthe last year I have had a consistently high TROPONIN level. In the 20s ( up to 30) ... he said this does not reflect the general population. But didn't seem too concerned. Yet pointed out it is elevated.
He seemed more concerned about me keeping up a healthy lifestyle to help my blood pressure.
Does anyone please have more info on troponin levels and what this may mean for me...
