B-type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP)


Shortness of breath, fatigue, swelling in the legs, and difficulty
exercising are common symptoms linked to elevated levels of B-type Natriuretic
Peptide (BNP). BNP is a hormone released by the heart in response to increased
stress or strain on the heart muscles, particularly in conditions like heart
failure. In a medical context, BNP testing is essential for diagnosing and
monitoring heart failure and other cardiovascular conditions. By assessing the
severity of heart dysfunction through BNP levels, healthcare professionals can
tailor appropriate treatment strategies to effectively manage and improve
cardiac health.
