The results of Eugene’s proactive heart heath test can help you learn if you are more likely to develop a cardiovascular (heart) condition.
The results of this test may indicate that you carry a genetic variation in one of the 84 screened genes that may increase your chance of developing a genetic heart-related condition, including those that affect:
The heart’s rhythm, muscle, size and thickness.
The ability for blood to clot.
The aorta and blood vessels.
Cholesterol and blood pressure.
It’s important to know Eugene’s proactive heart health test cannot diagnose you with a heart condition or guarantee that you will ever develop a heart condition. This test cannot exclude the chance of developing a heart condition due to other genetic or lifestyle factors.
Suppose your results identify an increased chance of developing heart disease in your lifetime. In that case, your genetic counsellor will explore possible management options with you so that you can take measures to lower your risk.
Eugene’s genetic counsellors can organise referrals to tertiary clinical services to facilitate management. Management may take place in the form of:
Reviewing family and personal health history, exercise, diet and lifestyle.
Screening to detect the heart-related condition at an early and treatable stage. The specific type and frequency may depend on the identified genetic variation and heart risk. Screening may include testing cholesterol, blood pressure and heart rate. It can also include heart monitoring through an exercise cardiac stress test, electrocardiography (ECG), electrocardiography, cardiac CT and coronary CT angiography.
Medication to prevent or reduce the chance of developing heart disease. Depending on the type of heart risk identified, there are medication options to control cholesterol levels, blood clotting, heart rate and blood pressure. In turn, these treatments can lower the risk of developing heart disease.
Eugene's heart health test is for healthy individuals who would like to be proactive about their heart health through understanding their risk of developing a cardiovascular condition.
This test can help you better understand their genetic risk of developing heart conditions and create a personalised risk report and action plan.
It’s important to know that this test cannot diagnose you with a heart condition, confirm if you have a heart condition, or tell if you will ever develop a heart condition.
If you have a family history that suggests you’d benefit from seeing a doctor or heart-health specialist, we’ll reach out and let you know prior to testing your sample.
