Most Americans over the age of 65 suffer from some form of congestive heart failure. It’s considered one of the most expensive medical conditions to treat because it often involves multiple pharmaceuticals served in a cocktail. Pharmacogenetics helps to simplify the process by taking away a lot of the guesswork.

Testing can also help us understand how drugs may prevent clotting and lower the risk of heart attack or stroke.
