Predictive Genetic Testing
Genetic testing for inherited heart disease can identify the cause of a family’s heart disease. Testing can also help determine which specific relatives are at risk for developing it. Patients with an inherited cardiovascular condition may have few or no symptoms but still face significant risk of heart disease, including sudden cardiac arrest.
Cardiomyopathies can affect patients of all ages. Patients
with an identified pathogenic variant could have as high
as a 50% higher risk.
At American Medical we offer a comprehensive cardiomyopathy panel & familial hypercholersterolemia panel. The results of these tests can help better manage a patient’s wellness through medication, life style changes and medical procedures.
