Cardiovascular Genetic Testing

If you or a loved one has had a history of heart disease, it’s important to know if it is hereditary. With this knowledge, a doctor can schedule a long-term preventative health care plan to improve quality of life. Take the first step with KARDIA GUARD

GENETIC HEART TESTING

By using a genetic test for heart disease, doctors can identify the root cause of a family’s heart disease. The test also helps doctors determine individual relatives who are most at risk for developing the heart condition.

GENETIC HEART CONDITIONS

A lot of cardiac conditions can be genetic. Examples of genetic heart conditions are arrhythmias, congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy, and high blood cholesterol. Coronary artery disease, which can run in families, may lead to people suffering from a heart attack, stroke, or heart failure.

PREVENT HEART DISEASE

If your family has a history of heart disease, there are steps you can take to prevent it. A healthy diet, exercise, limiting alcohol, not smoking, controlling your blood pressure, and getting an annual cardiac scanning test are all great preventive measures to help keep the heart-healthy.
