A polygenic risk score arrived at by analyzing over 6 million genetic variations that affect your heart health
A test with high clinical confidence backed by empirical evidence
A score that is fine tuned for the Indian population by research that included over 1,00,000 people of South Asian decent
Below, the Implication (what it means) and the Action (what needs to be done) are elaborated.
You are at a higher genetic risk (~2.5 times) of getting an heart attack* than an average risk counterpart.
Take a comprehensive heart check-up and consult your doctor for medical management. This will prevent the possibility of heart attack in young individuals.
You are at a moderate genetic risk (~1.5 times) of getting a heart attack* than an average risk counterpart.
Avoid all lifestyle risks such as smoking, stress, etc. Maintain normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels with regular monitoring. Medication, such as blood thinners, may be considered by your doctor, depending on overall risk factors to reduce chances of an heart attack*.
You are not at a high genetic risk of getting a heart attack*.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle and get routine health check-ups.
*Heart disease is often referred to as a silent killer, and for good reason. It can happen in young individuals too. Symptoms usually appear after significant damage has been done to the cardiovascular system. Until now, there was no way for you to know if you were at risk. With the KARDIOGEN test you now have the opportunity to find out your risk of developing heart disease even before showing symptoms and can start taking precautions before you show any symptoms. This reduces the possibility of getting an heart attack at an young age.
