Cardiogenetic is a preventive and personalised medical service that determines the genetic predisposition that an individual has to the individual relative risk of developing premature cardiovascular diseases and the factors associated with them.
Our specialists in cardiology determine the individualised genetic profile of each patient, which will help determine the most appropriate preventive or therapeutic measures. A personalised diagnosis will help patients improve lifestyle habits.
Cardiogenetic analyses a wide range of genes involved in processes such as inflammation or the regulation of the cholesterol metabolism in order to detect the possible presence of unfavourable genetic variants that can compromise correct functioning. They also report on point mutations (SNPs), linking them to their effect on our body:
▪ Genetic factors associated with cardiovascular disease.
▪ Factors associated with pathophysiologic pathways.
▪ Genetic diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases.
▪ With Cardiogenetic, we can determine individual risk patterns for developing premature cardiovascular disease and the factors associated with them, such as HDL levels in the blood. In addition, we evaluate the genetic variants associated with high blood pressure, atherosclerosis and venous thrombosis.
The Cardiogenetic results provide precise information, enabling individuals to adapt certain aspects of their diet and lifestyle to their genetic characteristics, reducing the risk from these unfavourable variations present in their own genetic heritage as much as possible.
Our cardiologists use the genetic variants found to establish measures and develop a preventive plan, avoiding the emergence of cardiovascular disease.
