    NT-proBNP

    N-terminal pro–B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is a special hormone produced by your heart. Your body makes more NT-proBNP to help control your cardiac wall stress. Our bodies should do this naturally, so elevated levels of NT-proBNP mean our bodies are having difficulty maintaining optimum cardiac wall stress. When there are changes in pressure inside the heart muscle, which can be either heart failure or other cardiac problems, NT-proBNP is produced. Thus, high levels mean your heart is in danger. Therefore, NT-proBNP serves as an invaluable marker to help detect and evaluate the severity of heart failure.
