Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello,I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.Rising BNP can be due to (in your case);
2) Heart muscle dysfunction.
3) Congestive heart failure.
4) Kidney failure.
5) High blood pressure
It alone does not have a prognostic value. So no inference should be drawn by its rising value as it is dependent on too many variables.
Also a single investigations in a complicated disease issue and lingering chronic medical problem is never a concluding parameter. Overall how you are doing or how the other investigative parameters are going on, would decide the long term prognosis.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
This still did not answer my question...Every bit of info you gave me I already know...I want an honest answer about my mortality using bnp with bouts headaches, Nausea and sweating an with the heart issues and ESRD. Or do you not know because nothing is written?? I'm sorry if I seem rude but I want to know...I guess if you were facing this so would you...I don't think you can give me a prognosis. I PROBABLY SHOULD NOT HAVE ASKED...
Unfortunately, just on the basis of BNP or ESRD; a life span cannot be predicted in an individual scenario. This is the limitation of the medical science. Sir, You are worried of rising BNP. Does this tell about a bad prognosis? My answer is no. The rising BNP alone cannot be predictive of it.
