What is Cardio inCode and how can it help reduce your cardiovascular risk?
Do you have a family history of cardiovascular risk factors? Are you concerned that you might also be having heart attack symptoms?
Do you have cardiovascular risk factors? Would you like to boost your prevention plan?
Would you like to know your genetic predisposition toward myocardial infarction?
If you answered YES, know that 50% of the likelihood of suffering myocardial infarction depends on your genetics.
In other words, to know your real risk of suffering a heart attack, it’s essential to evaluate your genetics.
Classic cardiovascular risk factors (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, etc.) are not enough on their own, as they only contribute by 50% to the likelihood of developing a severe cardiovascular problem. That is why it is necessary to combine information from both categories to know the risk as accurately as possible.
Know your genetics with Cardio inCode
Cardio inCode Score is a patented genetic test validated in over 65,000 patients that analyses the 12 most important genetic variants related with cardiovascular risk in your DNA.
Thanks to Cardio inCode, knowing your real risk of suffering a heart attack empowers you to determine what cardiovascular prevention steps you should take, their order of priority, intensity, and duration.
What’s more, Cardio inCode will inform you on your predisposition to developing classical cardiovascular risk factors such as high cholesterol, hypertension or diabetes, among others, in addition to implementing cardiovascular prevention measures appropriate for your risk. In Cardio inCode, we analyse 158 genetic variants in your DNA.
It must be remembered that cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in Spain and throughout the world. This should be enough to give cardiovascular prevention steps a high priority in how you care for your health.
How can I order the Cardio inCode test?
With the help of your physician, you can easily order a Cardio inCode test, following these steps:
Your physician orders a test from us, and receives the DNA collection kit
A sample of your saliva or blood is taken, and the necessary documents are annexed to it
The sample is sent to our laboratory for analysis
We send the encrypted results to your physician, who will arrange an appointment with you to discuss them
What are Cardio inCode cardiovascular prevention test users saying?
Thousands of individuals have already benefited from the Cardio inCode genetic test to reduce the risk of suffering a heart attack, and their cardiovascular risk in general.
Centres that use Cardio inCode for their patients’ cardiovascular prevention programmes
Their trust is the best guarantee.
Privacy and safety guaranteed
The privacy, confidentiality and security of your data are of the highest priority for GEN inCode. In compliance with the legislation in force, we use all necessary computer security protocols, including encryption, to guarantee the anonymisation and integrity of your health data.
All connections to our SITAB data platform are made under the SSL cryptographic protocol. The use of an anonymous identification code for the comprehensive management of patient samples, from analysis to the issue of the results, enables their traceability in a secure, confidential and 100% reliable way.
Cardio inCode is backed by extensive scientific evidence. A sample of the publications:
These studies show that the genetic risk score of Cardio inCode is associated with the risk of presenting a coronary accident. Therefore, the higher the genetic score, the greater the coronary risk. This way, genetics enables us to identify those individuals with coronary risk higher than it would be based only on their classical risk factors.
