I don't know how long they will remain elevated after an MI. I know that it took about 24 hrs for mine to appear elevated ( I seem to remember 6.0 is what the internist said). He also informed me that it was a very minor elevation comparatively. I don't know the reference range to compare it to offhand either. I think my levels decreased by 48 hrs post MI, but then again, I am not positive of that either.
