Cardiovascular disease is one of Australia’s largest health problems. Despite improvements over the last few decades, it remains one of the biggest burdens on our economy. Many factors contribute to the risk of developing heart disease, including personal genetics and family history, nutrition and exercise, hypertension, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In addition, an individual’s unique genetic makeup can influence how he/she will respond to medications used to treat heart conditions.

How can the Cardiac DNA Profile assist?

DNA testing with Cardiac DNA analyzes patients’ DNA to identify specific genetic variants associated with an increased risk of developing certain heart-related health conditions such as hypertension, atrial fibrillation and myocardial infarction. This test also provides insight into patients’ potential responses to eight classes of commonly prescribed medications that are used to treat heart-related conditions or are known to affect the cardiovascular system.

What can you do with this result?
Cardiac DNA Profile provides physicians with information about their patients’ genetic risks of various heart-related health conditions. Cardiac DNA Insight® empowers the physician to help patients make informed decisions regarding diet and exercise, while also providing information about medication response. Our easy-to-read genetic test reports provide actionable information and recommendations that provide individuals with a road-map to achieve optimal heart health.
