A healthy heart is a finely tuned machine, pumping blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout the body. Heart failure disrupts this process. Your heart’s ventricles may enlarge or stiffen, and they can’t properly pump blood. As a result, fluid can accumulate in the body’s tissues, and over time that can lead to swelling, kidney and liver damage, chronic fatigue, and heart arrhythmia, among other issues. The heart will eventually give out if CHF is left untreated, so it’s vital to order blood tests for heart failure so you can get the treatment you need to prevent the disease from progressing. We make this easy by providing heart failure tests near you.

The Role of Blood Tests for Heart Failure

Physicians often order heart failure lab work to help diagnose congestive heart failure. These blood test results may guide physicians in ordering other tests, such as chest x-rays or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to support the diagnosis.

With Personalabs, you can order specific blood tests for heart health online, then take the order to one of our 4,000-plus affiliated labs across the country to get fast, accurate results.

Types of Heart Failure Tests

Blood tests for congestive heart failure can help confirm a diagnosis by testing for peptide hormones called B-type natriuretic peptides. You may also take a test if you have symptoms such as arrhythmia, nausea, or rapid breathing. Blood work can measure levels of substances such as magnesium and lactate to determine if your symptoms are caused by heart failure.

Who Should Get Tested for Heart Failure?

You should order CHF labs if:

  • You have other heart-related conditions such as coronary artery disease or high blood pressure.
  • There is a family history of heart failure.
  • The heart muscles have been damaged or inflamed.
  • You have a disease that can lead to heart failure, such as diabetes or thyroid disorder.
  • You have risk factors such as smoking, drinking too much alcohol, or obesity.
  • You experience symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, swollen stomach, legs, or feet, chest pain, or a chronic cough.

You may also order a blood test for CHF if your doctor suggests lab work will help with a diagnosis.

When to Do Heart Failure Labs

You should order lab tests for CHF as soon as possible. Heart failure progresses through four phases (stages A, B, C, and D) and gets worse the longer it goes on. Detecting heart failure early on gives you more treatment options, such as medication and lifestyle modifications, that can slow the disease and preserve a good quality of life.
