Troponin levels are used to identify an injury to the heart, so no treatment is available to lower troponin levels. A readable troponin level can indicate a heart attack, congestive heart failure, myocarditis or other heart conditions, according to MedlinePlus.
A healthy person doesn't have a readable troponin level, states MedlinePlus. A low troponin level can indicate heart damage, and a high troponin level usually indicates that a heart attack occurred. Troponin levels increase within six hours of a heart attack, and all heart attack victims show raised levels after 12 hours. Troponin levels can remain elevated in heart attack patients for one to two weeks.
