Every person between the age of 11 and 29 will have had a heel-prick blood test at birth, which is on file with the HSE.
The IHF is urging the public - particularly where there is a family history of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome - to reclaim their tests.
The HSE will destroy more than one million heel-prick blood tests after Easter Sunday.
