Hereditary Heart Health Test

The genetics of heart disease

Hypertension, dyslipidemia, DM and smoking are common risk factors leading to certain types of heart disease e.g. ischemic heart disease, arrhythmias and valvular heart disease. Nonetheless these risk factors are occasionally absent in many patients. In this group of patients, genetic mutations could possibly be the key risk factor.

Many people may not know that heart disease can be genetically transmitted. Studies showed that about 1 in 200 heart patients carry genetic risks.  If left undetected and untreated, these conditions can be life-threatening.

Inherited heart conditions can be successfully managed.

Successful prevention and management for inherited heart conditions rely on the collaboration of the multi-disciplinary team of Geneticist and Cardiologist. Geneticist will counsel and recommend appropriate genetic screening test for individual patient and his family. The results will then be interpreted and risk evaluated. If risk for heart condition is detected, Cardiologist will recommend further necessary investigations. Insights into inherited heart conditions can help you and your doctor plan for prevention even before the first symptom arises, thus lower your overall risk of heart disease and its consequences.

Hereditary Heart Health Test

The novel Hereditary Heart Health Test, using saliva collection, analyzes 30 genes commonly associated with inherited heart conditions as recognized by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics.

With highly accurate results, this is where early risk detection makes huge different outcome.
