I am 67yrs. old and have had Diabetes for the last 21 years. Can anyone highlight about the blood test called TROPONIN? Thanks in advance for your replies and help. pramod

A troponin test measures the levels of troponin T or troponin I proteins in the blood. These proteins are released when the heart muscle has been damaged, such as occurs with a heart attack. The more damage there is to the heart, the greater the amount of troponin T and I there will be in the blood.
