Cardiac DNA Insight®
Discover your heart’s needs through your DNA
Your DNA can tell you a lot about your heart, including risks of various heart-related health conditions, effective diets, and heart medication response. Without insight into your genetic makeup, you and your physician may struggle determining the right medication and dosage for you, and the result can be a lengthy and expensive guessing game. Through genetic testing, you can better understand your risks, and your physician can make more confident decisions regarding diet, exercise, and medications to help you manage or reduce your risks of a heart-related health condition.

Become Informed About Your Risks
Genetic factors and family history play a big role in your risks of heart disease, but these risks can increase when combined with unhealthy lifestyle choices. Following healthy habits and taking proactive measures may help you reduce those risks. By identifying specific genetic variants associated with an increased risk of developing certain heart-related heart conditions, genetic testing can help you better safeguard yourself and take extra precautions when it comes to your heart health.
