Approximately 1 in 7 people suffers from thrombophilia. The MyThrombogene® gene test examines the presence of specific mutations in genes that have been shown to be associated with thrombophilia and significantly increase the risk of thrombosis.When should you be screened for thrombophilia?
Thrombosis usually occurs after the age of 40 and after exposure to various risk factors, but there is the possibility that it is also inherited.
It is due to the incorrect action of the factors of the hemostasis regulation mechanism.
In case there is a genetic predisposition, we have a correspondingly higher chance of clot formation after exposure to specific risk factors.
The test is performed on 1 vial of EDTA blood or a saliva sample.
