Genetic Testing for Coronary Disease
Genetic testing is used for at least three purposes:
• To determine your risk for a common disease, such as heart attack
• To know whether you have a gene variant that virtually assures you will develop a rare inherited disease
• to determine your response to, or side effects from, a particular drug
The advance knowledge you will develop heart disease and the decisions you face when you acquire this knowledge allow us to help you as part of a comprehensive prevention and treatment plan.
