What Does the Digoxin Blood Test measure?

This lab test measures the drug digoxin – a prescribed medication for relieving heart failure symptoms. Digoxin helps control blood circulation and manage arrhythmias and heart rate by increasing heart pump efficiency. However, it has to be regulated; otherwise, it can be toxic.

Who Should Take a Digoxin Lab Test?

People who have started digoxin therapy for heart failure should take the digoxin test for monitoring. Typically, the test is performed seven to 10 days after the initial administration of the drug and whenever there are changes in the dosage.

Outside the routine monitoring, your healthcare provider may also request a digoxin blood test when symptoms of its low or high dosage can be observed.

Low digoxin entails ineffective management of heart failure symptoms characterized by fatigue, swelling of the hands and feet, and difficulty breathing.

On the other hand, high digoxin levels cause blood toxicity and trigger the following symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Shortness of breath
  • Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)

Digoxin Testing Preparation

The test does not require special preparation, such as fasting. You should, however, only have your blood drawn six to eight hours after you received your last digoxin dose. Provide this information to the phlebotomist to ensure results accuracy.

Blood Test for Digoxin Levels Results

Normal test values for a digoxin level test fall between 0.5 to 0.9 ng/mL. If your test result shows values above the upper limit, it may suggest digoxin overdose or toxicity. If it’s below the normal range, it could mean that your dosage is inadequate to alleviate heart failure symptoms.
