Heart of The Matter: Diagnostic Tests For Coronary Disease

Modern lifestyle comes with its share of downsides- heart problems. Many people experience heart problems because of poor dietary choices, lack of exercise, sedentary jobs and stress. Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is one such problem that is characterized by narrowing of arteries supplying blood to the heart. This happens because of the build-up of plaque in the arteries; and it decreases the blood flow to the heart. If left undetected, CHD might lead to a heart attack.

Igenetic offers specialized tests for diagnosing and managing your heart conditions effectively. These tests ensure a complete assessment of your heart condition so that your doctor can manage them.

This invasive test is performed to study the blood flow through the arteries and various compartments of the heart.

Blood tests:

Tests are done to ascertain the level of fats, triglycerides, cholesterol, sugar and proteins in the body and the results are corelated with other test results.
