Thrombosis DNA test
Thrombosis is the leading cause of death or disability in Western countries.
A thrombosis is caused by a blood clot (thrombus) that clogs the veins or arteries, usually caused by an atheromatous plaque that grows in the wall of a blood vessel.
It can cause phlebitis in the legs, or even lead to thrombosis, after sitting for a long time or without mobility, in genetically predisposed people.
When a clot breaks off and begins to travel through the circulatory system it is known as embolism.
60% of the causes of thrombosis are due to genetic factors and 40% are related to environmental factors, sedentary lifestyle, diet, or smoking.
Prevention and early detection is the only way to prevent the disease or reduce its risks.
TROMBOgenes profile is indicated in smokers, obese, hypertensive, diabetic, pregnancy, people with suspected thrombophilia and before surgery. And especially in people with a family history of thrombosis.
TROMBOgenes is also especially recommended in women who take contraceptives, assisted fertilization treatment or hormonal replacement therapy in menopause.
TROMBOgenes studies markers in different genes related to coagulation. It allows to know the risk of thrombosis in a personalized way.
