Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death in the U.S. and is often silent with little or no visual symptoms. Many risk factors can be attributed to the development of heart disease, such as family history, obesity, lack of exercise, high cholesterol levels, and other health conditions. These lifestyle risk factors may impact how your heart and body functions throughout your lifetime. But if you have a family history of heart disease, you may have inherited specific genes that place you at higher risk of developing many types of cardiovascular disease.

Molecular diagnostic testing can identify with pinpoint accuracy if you have inherited (germline) genetic variations in specific genes that can give an early indication of an elevated risk of a cardiovascular event. At Innovative Gx Laboratories, we offer inherited cardiovascular disease testing services for patients who would like to determine if they have an inherited genetic risk for a cardiac condition. Our inherited cardiovascular diseases panels include:

We analyze our patient specimens by full gene sequencing and deliver a comprehensive panel wirelessly to your physician. Our genetic report will become a valuable medical document for you and your doctor to make an accurate treatment plan with the knowledge gained from our Inherited Cardiovascular Disease testing panels.

Genetic counseling services are available any time during the testing process to answer any questions you or your physician may have. Innovative Gx Laboratories delivers precision genetic testing to help you understand your inherited genetic risk and aid in the clinical management of cardiovascular disease.
