  • Or, if you should talk to your doctor about more than lifestyle changes for certain heart conditions.
  • Your doctor may find it useful to know how your genes can influence the way your body processes certain medications.
  • And, knowing what your genes say about risk can help you and your family be proactive about conditions that may run in your family.
