A New State of Art
Conventionally, an individual’s risk of developing a Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is assessed through their self-reported family history and lifestyle factors, such as physical activity levels, diet and smoking. However, this doesn’t consider their genetic susceptibility to CVDs.
When an individual is classed as an intermediate risk based on their lifestyle factors, it can be hard to determine if they will progress onto developing CVDs, which is where genotyping could become extremely useful.
What does the Heart DNA test cover?
TYPE III Hyperlipoproteinemia, Atrial Fibrillation, Coronary Artery Disease, Hypertension, Myocardial Infarction, Peripheral Arterial Disease and Sickle Cell Anaemia.
Beta Blocker Efficiency, Beta Blockers and LVEF Response, Metoprolol metabolism, Warfarin Sensitivity, Clopidogrel Metabolism, Verapamil and QTC Interval, Verapamil vs Atenolol, Simvastatin Uptake, Perindopril Metabolism and Caffeine Sensitivity.
Triglycerides, HDL Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol and Gene X (Cholesterol lowering polymorphism).
Factor V Leiden, Prothrombin G20210A and MTHFR Variant.
Who is the test for?
Patients with a family history of a CVD.
Patients with existing cardiac conditions and would like to learn more about their conditions.
Patients who are on oestrogen therapy from combined oral contraceptives or HRT, or at risk of developing DVT.
Patients who are about to start medicating or currently on a treatment plan with reported side effects.
Anyone who would like to be more certain about their future cardiac health and make preventative lifestyle and behavioural changes.
Benefits for your patients
The reports enable you to strengthen your patients' informed consent by giving them full knowledge of the potential consequences regarding their lifestyle choices, treatment options and the possible risks and benefits.
Prevention Over Treatment
The Heart DNA Test helps you suggest early interventions by identifying genetic risk factors for a range of conditions.
Boost patients confidence in their prescribed treatment and improve adherence to medical advice, by uncovering genetic insights that changes the clinical dialogue from a population level advice to a more personal one.
Insightful Clinical Decisions
Have a more objective risk assessment by combining the patient's genetic risk profile and self-reported environmental factors. No report would ever be released without your prior review and context provision. The final decision is always yours.
Our pharmacogenetics panel predicts patients drug responses, reducing prescriptions of medication that is ineffective or causes adverse side effects.
How it works
