If your blood pressure is higher than 140/90 mmhg, then doctor visits are needed. Heart block is an abnormal heart rhythm where the heart beats too slowly (bradycardia ). In this condition, the electrical signals that tell the heart to contract are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles. Let's discuss your concern in detail so that we can provide the best medical plan. X.

B-type natriuretic peptide (bnp) and n-terminal pro b-type natriuretic peptide (ntprobnp) are peptide (small proteins) that are either hormones or part of the peptide that contained the hormone at one time. They are continually produced in small quantities in the heart and released in larger quantities when the heart senses that it needs to work harder. This supports fluid retention and volume expansion in the arteries and veins. Subsequently, the heart muscle is stretched and works hard to pump blood under normal resting condition. Tests for bnp and nt-probnp measure their levels in the blood in order to detect and evaluate heart failure. The two tests are not interchangeable and should not be used together. Your healthcare practitioner should order one or the other but not both. It is important to note that heart failure is an incorrect term. The heart still pumps blood, it just has difficulty doing so. If your healthcare practitioners treat you for heart failure, they have several approaches depending upon the severity of the disease.

No, not at all. It is problem in filling of heart, and can be treated with drugs. Just rule out hypertension, ischemic heart disease and diabetes. If they are associated, things are different.

Hello lybrate-user. It has become a phobia now and not just fear. There is a vast difference. And converted into a disease. So needs proper treatment and only homoeopathic treatment can cure it. You should consult and take proper treatment. You can consult me at Lybrate.
