Genetic Testing for Autosomal Dominant Hypercholesterolemia
Dr. Baudhuin discusses the use of Mayo’s recently introduced reflex panel for diagnosis of autosomal dominant hypercholesterolemia (ADH). Use of this genetic testing panel to identify the mutations in some of the various genes involved in ADH provides a cost-effective strategy for a definitive diagnosis of a genetic disease.
