There are modifiable and nonmodifiable risk factors that predispose to the onset of cardiovascular disease.
Modifiable risk factors include: lifestyle (alcohol, smoking, physical activity) and diet, while non-modifiable risk factors include: age, sex, family history and genetic predispositions.
Cardiovascular disease refers to coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease, often favored in onset by the concomitant presence of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and obesity.

The Cardiovascular Health test studies the genetic variants that determine a different response to the diet, relative to cardiovascular diseases, allowing to define personalized food strategies based on the individual’s response to the nutrients introduced.
The test is dedicated to those with risk factors or familiarity with cardiovascular problems, but in general to anyone who wants to prevent the onset of potential problems by adapting their lifestyle and diet to a possible genetic predisposition to these problems.
