Genetic Analysis Can Help Prevent Sudden Death
This app performs a comprehensive analysis of your genes for conditions that cause an abnormal electrical condition of the heart called arrhythmias and cardiomyopathies. The full list of conditions screened for appears below. When the heart doesn't beat in proper rhythm, sudden death may occur.
Many times sudden death occurs without the person ever knowing they have one of these conditions.
If the person finds out that they have one of these conditions before sudden death occurs, the person's healthcare provider will be able to implement a plan, such as specific medications or a medical device, that may prevent sudden death.
You can outsmart your genes. If you have a change in a gene that predisposes you to sudden death, there are lifestyle modifications and interventions that have been shown to prevent sudden death from occurring.
This DNA App Analyzes Your Genetic Risk of Cardiomyopathies and Cardiac Arrhythmias
This app screens for the following conditions and provides you with an easy-to-read, empowering report of the results:
- Long QT Syndrome (LQTS)
- Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) caused by Long QT Syndrome
- Brugada Syndrome
- Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT)
- Wolff Parkinson White (WPW)
- Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia/Cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C)
- Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
- Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM)
This app is compatible with most DNA tests including 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and MyHeritage.
Once your DNA data is stored in your Sequencing.com account, click the app's 'Start' button. You'll receive your results in about 15 minutes.

While this DNA analysis app can analyze data from many different types of genetic tests, it is important to take into consideration that the data from some types of genetic tests may not provide a complete assessment of your genetic risk of sudden cardiac death. For example, if your DNA data is from a genotyping genetic test, which is the type of testing used by 23andMe, AncestryDNA, MyHeritage, FamilyTreeDNA, and Living DNA, then the analysis of your DNA data and the report provided by this app may not give you a complete understanding of your genetic risk of cardiac dysrhythmias and cardiomyopathies, especially if sudden death runs in your family.
If you think you may be at higher risk for sudden death, it is best to work with a doctor or genetic counselor who can assess your risk, interpret your results, and build an action plan.
