Carrying a mutated gene increases the risk of cardiovascular disease
*Theo thông tin từ American College of Cardiology
GenLDL is a test for diagnosing familial hypercholesterolemia—also known as hereditary hypercholesterolemia (FH). By analyzing mutations in three genes (LDLR, PCSK9, and APOB), the results are a strong indication of risk for the disease.
These test results have strong diagnostic value in supporting physicians and patients in selecting appropriate goals and treatment plans, establishing safe cholesterol thresholds (compared to those with normal hypercholesterolemia), and preventing dangerous complications, thereby improving survival rates (correct treatment prolongs the expected longevity).
(e.g., male < 55 years old, female < 60 years old)
People with genetic mutations have a
of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease with the same blood LDL-C index.
