Imagine taking a simple test that can reveal who lives and who dies in the next few weeks. A test that could allow you to change your fate if you get the WRONG answer.
How much would that be worth?
You can bet the medical mainstream would turn it into a chance to suck billions out of the bank accounts of desperate Americans.
But new research reveals how that test might already exist. A measurement that can show who might be at the highest risk of death from heart problems.
And I’m not talking about in some general sense over the coming years. It can reveal who’s at risk RIGHT NOW.
More importantly, it could even allow you to STOP A DEADLY HEART ATTACK days or weeks before it strikes.
And this test isn’t worth billions. In some places, you can get it for as little as 10 bucks.
LIFE-SAVING test reveals IMMEDIATE heart risk
It’s a single test looking for a protein that regulates heart muscle contractions.
Troponin gets dumped into the blood in response to heart attack damage. In fact, ER docs often order a troponin test when they suspect a patient may have had one.
But the new study shows the time to get that test is right now.
Because it won’t just help reveal if you’ve had a heart attack. It can help show if you’re about to have one within the next three months.
Across all age groups, high troponin levels increase the risk of death from heart problems, often within a matter of months.
Even younger folks – people under 30 who’d never DREAM they’re at risk of having a heart attack – have a higher chance when they’re troponin levels jump.
And in seniors, the risk was shocking. Nearly half of folks over 80 with high troponin levels are dead within three years. Most of them die within six months.
Reduce your heart attack risk with these steps
There was one seemingly bizarre exception to the rule. Researchers found the folks with the absolute highest levels of troponin actually had the LOWEST risk of death.
But when you take a closer look, that finding actually makes sense.
You see, most of the people the study examined had those high levels because they ALREADY had a heart attack and survived. And as a result, they already had treatment (often with surgery to reopen the blocked arteries).
Your goal is to avoid getting to that point in the first place. And this test gives you just the chance you need to take quick action to bring those levels back down and reduce your risk.
If your own troponin levels are high, you can take three quick steps to help turn things around…
- Load up on heart-healthy supplements including CoQ10 and fish oil
- Eat better, right now, by eliminating toxic processed foods ASAP
- Go for a walk as being sedentary is one of the biggest risk factors for both rising troponin and heart risk
Troponin tests are available now. Your doc can order it for you, and it might even be covered by your insurance (especially if you’re already at risk of heart problems).
If not, you can get it from a lab. The average cost is about $50. But it’s often available for half that price and in some cases, just $10.
