Apolipoprotein E and your risk of heart disease

Cardiovascular disease accounts for 31% of all deaths worldwide. The APOE gene is a key genetic risk factor involved in heart disease, the risk for which can be modified with simple lifestyle changes. Genovate is here to help you understand your genetic risk of cardiovascular disease and determine the best way to lower your cholesterol levels simple and easy.

Genetics can influence your risk of cardiovascular disease, and APOE variants influence how well you will respond to dietary changes or statins to lower your cholesterol.

After you purchase the Genovate kit, you will receive swabs to collect your DNA and a pre-paid return envelope to easily send back your DNA to the lab. Around 7 to 10 business days after your test is received in the lab, you will be able to view your results online to determine if your DNA puts you at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Your DNA report will include detailed information on how your APOE genotype contributes to your cardiovascular disease risk. It will also give you insight into the best method for lowering your cholesterol levels to mitigate cardiovascular disease risk.

Genovate also offers other actionable genetic tests that focus on health and wellness, lifestyle, food sensitivities, and ancestry. You can find them in our science store or visit Genovate to find more information.
