HNL Genomics (CTGT) is a diagnostic laboratory that specializes in genetic testing.  Our laboratory works closely with physicians and health care professionals who specialize in genetic disorders.  We are not a clinic and do not provide direct patient consultation.  In addition, HNL Genomics (CTGT) does not accept samples directly from patients.  All test requests must come through your physician.  Likewise, HNL Genomics (CTGT) will only send results back to your physician so that they can review all relevant findings with you.

How To Get Help

If you are a patient seeking genetic testing or have questions about a specific disorder we recommend that you contact a genetics clinic.  Most university hospitals and children’s hospitals have genetics departments and a team of healthcare providers who specialize in evaluating and diagnosing genetic disorders.  Members of this team often include a geneticist and a genetic counselor.  A geneticist is a physician specialized in evaluating and diagnosing genetic conditions.  A genetic counselor is an individual with graduate training and is specialized in helping patients understand the complexity of genetic disorders and testing.
Other Resources

If you are interested in more information regarding a particular genetic disorder it may be helpful to search for a patient advocacy group.  Advocacy groups are organizations dedicated to supplying information and establishing contacts among individuals who share a common genetic condition.  These organizations are a good source of information and often times maintain referral lists of specialists experienced with a specific condition.  Some examples of organizations dedicated to connective tissue disorders include:

The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes published by HNL Lab Medicine are guidelines and are intended for informational purposes only. CPT coding is the exclusive responsibility of the billing entity. HNL Lab Medicine strongly recommends confirmation of CPT codes with third-party payors and/or the AMA. We assume no responsibility for billing errors due to reliance upon CPT codes provided by HNL Lab Medicine.

The Effect of Genetics on Individual Heart Health: Early Identification of FH Variations to Optimize Treatment

Test must be ordered by a Physician.

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic disorder that is characterized by abnormally high blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, sometimes referred to as "bad cholesterol". This condition affects an estimated 1 in 250 people, and increases the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease. In fact, FH is estimated to be the cause of 2-3% of heart attacks in individuals younger than age 60.
