can they test for "the HCM Gene"? I have been reading articles about HCM, and a couple of them say that their kids "don't have the gene". How is that determined?
There is genetic counseling but my husband was told it not absolutely spot on, so he didn’t have it done, there was no other family history saying that our son will be echoed etc every 5 years
My husband has HCM with a very common gene mutation. Our daughter was going for regular checkups. Now most of the family has done the gene testing. For most of them it was peace of mind, or getting on track with medication early. I would recommend testing if it is a familial kind.
