According to a new study including 2000 patients from the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and published in Journal of the American Medical Association, risk of severe heart attack can be detected much sooner using a new blood test.
Most people have several unnoticeable, very mild heart attacks long before they experience a severe heart attack. This test detects proteins that are released to heal the heart after these mild heart attacks.
Researchers say this early detection and then treatment may lower the risk of severe heart attack by 50%.
