Myoglobin, Serum Test

What is the Myoglobin Serum Test?

A muscle injury blood test can identify myoglobin. Irritation of the heart or skeletal muscle causes myoglobin release. Myoglobin levels multiply after severe muscle damage and can be detected within hours.

The myoglobin serum test measures myoglobin levels in the blood. It is a protein found in the heart and skeletal muscles that suggests muscular or cardiac muscle injury. Muscular dystrophy, rhabdomyolysis, and myositis. It is also recommended to confirm myocardial infractions with additional cardiac indicators.

The kidneys remove myoglobin from the blood and excrete it in the urine. A urine test can assess myoglobin levels in persons with severe skeletal muscle injury (rhabdomyolysis). Because myoglobin is harmful to the kidneys, urine myoglobin levels reflect the severity of muscle injury.

  • Muscle trauma accidents
  • Seizures Surgery
  • Dystrophia (muscle illness)
