With this test, you can find out what is your genetic risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The test analyses the APOE gene, which affects lipid metabolism and thereby the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Different forms of the APOE gene affect, among other things, the amount and quality of cholesterol in the bloodstream. The majority of people have a neutral form, which does not cause deviations in lipid metabolism.
Less common forms of the APOE gene expose to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, especially when the diet is inappropriate in relation to the genetic heritage. Therefore, the test also provides guidance based on the APOE gene as to which type of diet is possibly the most appropriate choice for health.
