In many cases, dilated cardiomyopathy has genetic causes and is hereditary. An individual with a genetic risk may be asymptomatic for several years until DCM presents in the advanced, life-threatening stage. Genetic testing can reveal if an individual has a predisposition to DCM, enabling management and appropriate monitoring.

-Genetic causes of DCM
-Importance and benefits of genetic testing for patients and family members
-Sponsored, no-charge genetic testing and counseling through Invitae
