Genetic SNP Test Results



  1. In general, genetic test results seem to agree on a higher or lower Relative Risk for Heart conditions.

  2. Due to the range for the Average Population, estimated My Lifetime Risk can vary by a factor of 3 - as in Venus Thromboembolism.

  3. A clear trend is that risk is higher for Atrial Fibrillation, but lower for Heart Attacks, Aortic Aneurysms and others.

  4. No one in our family has ever died of a heart condition, but we suffer from cases of Atrial Fibrillation.
