Hypertension risk analysis

Hypertension is a very common syndrome in the general population. If it is not diagnosed , it can cause serious health problems like myocardial infarction or brain hemorrhages. It has a strong genetic component: if one of the parents is hypertensive, the risk of the person to be hypertensive is 25%; If both parents are hypertensive, the risk increases to 50%.

With the genetic test of arterial hypertension it is possible to know the individual predisposition to develop this syndrome and makes possible its detection in the initial phases. In addition, a medical specialist may monitor and control other factors that also directly affect hypertension, such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and alcohol and tobacco use.

How does it work?

  1. elige tu test genético
    Choose and suggest an analysis for your patient
  2. frotis bucal para análisis
    Your patient will receive its DNA sample kit at home
  3. instrucciones de uso
    One of our partner labs will make the analysis
  4. instrucciones de uso
    A specialist will explain the results by video-conference
  1. What are these tests?

    They are tests that study the genetic material (DNA) present in oral cells, which detect polymorphisms (genetic variants) in genes associated with the risk of arterial hypertension, venous thromboembolism and the risk of acute myocardial infarction.

  2. Who are they targeting?

    They are indicated for people with a personal or family background of hypertension.

    They are also aimed at people who, without a background, take a diet rich in salt, have a sedentary lifestyle, suffer from stress or consume tobacco or alcohol. All are risk factors that favor the onset of hypertension.

    In resume, it can be done in anyone with or without a family background who has a concern about this pathology and want to prevent and optimize their health in an effective and personalized way.

  3. What can they contribute to the patient's daily life?

    Knowing the patient genetic predisposition against these risks will allow a medical specialist to establish personalized medical follow-up guidelines. Prevention and control of risk factors are the best way to avoid cardiovascular accidents.

  4. How is the sample taken?

    The patient receives at home by courier a sample collection kit with very easy to follow instructions and an informed consent that must be signed. The sampling is very simple, quick and painless. You must only maintain the precautions detailed in the kit. Once made and given notice, a courier will come at patient’s home to pick it up and take it directly to the laboratory for analysis.
