Exercise May Mediate Chronic Troponin Elevations, Obesity or Not

BALTIMORE, MD  Coming close to or meeting recommended levels of physical activity was associated with a smaller chance of having high levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT)a surrogate for myocardial damagein a study of middle-aged and older people living in the community[1].

.

Being physically active was also linked with having a lower risk of heart failure, whether or not individuals were obese, in this analysis of data from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study, which was published in the May 2017 issue of JACC: Heart Failure.

.

“We typically recommend physical activity as a means of losing weight or lowering blood pressure, but it seems . . . that if you are obese and you [engage in] physical activity, you have benefits irrespective of weight loss,” lead author Dr Roberta Florido (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD) told heartwire from Medscape.

.

“If you really reach those guideline-recommended levels, that’s when you have the most benefit, so it’s important to aim for those 75 minutes a week of vigorous [physical activity] or 150 minutes a week of a combination of moderate and vigorous physical activity,” she added.

.

The study also suggests that hs-cTnT could be used as a marker of cardiac health, according to Florido. “Maybe you could recommend physical activity for [patients] and monitor their troponin over time as a marker for this health behavior.”

.

This study adds to close to 20,000 publications in the past decade that have investigated the link between exercise and heart disease, Drs Tariq Ahmad and Jeffrey M Testani (Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut) write in an accompanying editorial[2].

.

“Now we must get to the more difficult question: what are we going to do with this information?” they ask.
