a genetic heart disease...
Hereditary predisposition to heart disease is all about DNA mutations that can cause serious heart problems for some gene carriers.
Some DNA coding errors reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood properly, causing rapid fatigue and shortness of breath: this is called “heart failure”. Other DNA coding errors prevent the electrical impulse from passing from one heart muscle cell to another: this can cause “cardiac arrhythmias”.
