8k genetic testing can assess heart disease risk

More people are now undergoing a one-off genetic test costing Rs 8,000 to assess if they are born with a predisposition to heart diseases. The genomic risk score, also called polygenic score, currently prescribed for high-risk individuals — with family history of heart diseases, uncontrolled diabetes, hypertension or cholesterol levels — helps doctors assess risk, prevent or delay heart diseases, said senior cardiologist Dr S Ajit Mullasari at the Madras Medical Mission.
