What are the potential results?

You can expect 3 possible results from your test: positive, negative, or carrier status.

Positive: A positive test result means your genetics give you a higher-than-average risk of developing a heart condition. Remember, this doesn’t guarantee you will get the condition. It means you can now work with your doctor to proactively prevent the condition or detect it early, when it’s most treatable.

Negative: A negative result means we did not identify any changes in your genes that would increase your risk of heart issues. This means you can feel confident continuing with your doctor’s recommendations, like eating right, getting exercise, and going to all your appointments.

Carrier status: Carrier status means that a change was identified in your genes that most often does not increase your personal risk for developing a specific medical condition. But it does increase the chance that you could pass that condition to your children. Most often, though, both you and your partner have to be carriers for the same condition for your children to be at increased risk.
