Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are group of diseases affecting a person's heart and blood vessels. These diseases can affect one or many parts of the heart and/or blood vessels. As per the WHO global report , CVD’s are the leading cause of death and over three-quarters of them are reported from low and middle-income countries. Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by early detection and treatment combined with addressing behavioral and lifestyle risk factors such as unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity. It is important to detect cardiovascular disease as early as possible so that management with counseling and medicines can begin.

Some of Cardiac disorders are inherited and passed to generations. These affect people at any age and can be life-threatening. These cardiac disorders are genetically heterogeneous and have variable clinical presentations. Pathogenic variant(s) in a single gene may be associated with different cardiac conditions (clinical heterogeneity). These disorders can be inherited in an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked manner, depending on the etiology.

A person with CVD or Cardiac disorders may be symptomatic (physically experiencing the disease) or asymptomatic (not feeling anything at all). Timely detection and diagnosis of heart disorders can lead to enhanced treatment options, help to prevent sudden cardiac death, and improve prognosis. The department of Cardio Genetics at Dr. Remedies Genomics has identified and curated genetic variants associated with cardiology diseases in over 300 genes. With its immense knowledge and expertise, DRG can support doctors in providing your patients with a precise diagnosis and aid in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Testing can also identify asymptomatic and at-risk family members, facilitating precautions or interventions to prevent illness or sudden death. We at RG, with our expert and experienced team of Doctors, Clinical Geneticists, Bioinformaticians, and Genetic Counselors would be happy to be a part of your journey toward bringing change in the detection and treatment of CVD.
