Has anyone in your family had issues with their heart, blood pressure, or had a stroke? Do you have varicose veins in the family? Your genetics can influence these factors. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death worldwide. CVD includes disorders of the heart and blood vessels such as hypertension (high blood pressure), peripheral arterial disease, transient ischaemic attack (stroke), blood clots, high cholesterol. CVD may be genetic, acquired or a combination of both. Understanding potential genetic polymorphisms is paramount when managing CVD disorders.
