Frequently Asked Questions

Up to 48% of American adults have some form of cardiovascular disease*. Do you know your genetic risk and ways to mitigate them? 


Our reports are designed for informational purposes only, and not for the treatment or diagnosis of disease. We aim to provide helpful insights and easy to implement lifestyle recommendations to help you achieve your health and wellness goals . You should consult with your doctor before using any recommendations provided in our gene reports, especially if pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have pre-existing medical conditions.

Refund Policy

Due to the nature of the intricate research that goes in to these reports, we will not be able to provide a refund once you have uploaded your genetic information into our site for the purpose of the Gene Reports.

You Will Get a Detailed Report of Your Risks and Predisposition for the Following Cardiovascular Diseases & Conditions… 

How does this work?


It is our mission to empower you with the knowledge you need to make your health decisions work for you.

In Your Personalized Cardiovascular Gene Report… 


You will... learn if you have SNPs that might increase your risk for different heart conditions. For example, there are variants (different alleles) of the ApoE gene (such as ApoE4) which, if found in your DNA, can lead to increased risk of heart disease.


You will... receive an easy-to-understand gene report that details a comprehensive list of genes related to each cardiovascular health condition. 


You will… get a personalized risk assessment score based on your genes, and you will be able to visualize your SNPs in a gene table so you know exactly which SNPs are influencing your genetic predispositions. 


You will… get targeted health advice for different heart conditions, including personalized dietary and lifestyle recommendations based directly on your own particular genetic makeup and predispositions. 


You will… be empowered with an understanding of the unique environmental and genetic factors that are influencing your health, enabling you to make conscientious decisions about your heart health. 

Best of all… 

 We do what our competitors don’t -- and we do it for less.

Atrial Fibrillation

Congestive Heart Failure

Congenital Heart Defects


Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

Coronary Artery Disease

How much do Gene Reports cost? 

All subscribers to SelfDecode receive their Introductory Gene Reports completely free! They can also order additional, more specialized Gene Reports for just $29 each.

A full individual membership to SelfDecode is available for just $59 per year. We also offer a special discounted family plan that includes gene files for up to three individual members for just $118 per year.

SelfDecode Professional Plan members can access all gene reports for every patient file they upload.

Can I order Gene Reports even if I am not a SelfDecode member?

Yes! We offer a special membership to SelfDecode that includes access to our Gene Reports without any of the other features included in a full membership. Under this plan, you can order an Introductory Gene Report for $49, as well as our more specialized Gene Reports for $59 each. 

What happens after I order my Gene Report?

After you purchase your Gene Report, you will be redirected to a page where you can upload your genetic data. You’ll then be able to download your reports under the Gene Reports tab.

Can I see a sample of what is included in a Gene Report?

Yes! You can look at a sample report using Joe Cohen’s DNA data here.

Where should I get my genes tested?

We recommend 23andme, as our gene reports include the SNPs that are on the latest version of the 23andme chip.  

However, you can still use data from other genetic testing services, such as Ancestry and FamilyTreeDNA, if you prefer -- just be aware that not every testing company might include each and every SNP that we analyze in our Gene Reports.

Please note that we are not a subsidiary or partner of these companies.

What if the most important SNPs are not included in my genetic data set?

We have specifically designed our Gene Reports to analyze the SNPs that can give you the most reliable and actionable information about your health. However, individual SNPs are only a small part of your overall genetic profile, and we can still make the best out of whatever genetic information you have -- even if it is not totally complete!  Therefore, the interpretation of your SNPs and health advice derived from them should be taken into account in the context of your symptoms, health status, and lifestyle. Even if your data is missing certain SNPs, our software will take into account all available data -- as well as information about your symptoms, health status, and lifestyle -- to generate your Gene Report and to make appropriate lifestyle recommendations.

How do I know my data is secure?

We take your privacy and data security very seriously. This is why we employ multiple layers of data protection, including:

Secured data encryption 

Restricting employee access to personally-identifying information

Only collecting the minimum information necessary to provide you with your requested services

We do not and will not sell or make available any of your data to third-party companies.

Your payment is processed by secured and reputable companies such as PayPal and Stripe.

Unlock your genetic mysteries and learn how understanding your genetics can help you maintain a healthy heart.

Find out how your genetics may influence your cardiovascular health.

Everyone knows that it’s important to have a healthy diet to maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system, but it is just as important to have a good understanding of how the genes we carry around inside each of our cells might be influencing our heart health. By using knowledge about your genetics and genetic predispositions to empower your health decisions, you can make the best choices to nurture your own healthy heart.

Understanding your genetic predispositions helps make your diet, environment, and health decisions work for you. Your personalized cardiovascular gene report will unlock the door to the most important knowledge you need to know about your heart health.
