I Have Long QT Syndrome, What Is The Chance That One Of My Children Will Develop The Same Thing?

Question: I have long QT syndrome, what is the chance that one of my children will develop the same thing?

Answer :Whether or not your children will develop long QT syndrome depends on the type of the disease. Most of the time, all the children have to get an EKG and sometimes another test to see if further specific genetic testing is required. On the whole, the chances that your children will develop it are low.
