User rating for this question
Hi, I have XXXXXXX in contact with one of your doctors, ten days or so ago. I queried heart failure and have been to my doctor, who sent me for a BNP blood test. The result is 51 ng/mL and is seen as an average result. Does this eliminate heart failure or should I still have an echocardiogram? The symptoms still exist.
