The FKTN gene limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2M genetic test is a specialized diagnostic examination aimed at detecting mutations in the FKTN gene, which are responsible for causing limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2M (LGMD2M). This condition is a form of muscular dystrophy that affects the voluntary muscles around the hips and shoulders (the limb-girdle muscles), leading to muscle weakness and wasting. As an autosomal recessive disorder, LGMD2M requires two copies of the defective gene—one from each parent—for a person to be affected.

DNA Labs UAE offers this genetic test as a critical tool for confirming the diagnosis of LGMD2M, enabling healthcare professionals to tailor treatment and management plans according to the specific needs of the patient. The test involves analyzing the patient’s DNA to identify mutations in the FKTN gene, which provides instructions for making a protein involved in maintaining muscle cell structure and function.

The cost of the FKTN gene limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2M genetic test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. By conducting this test, families affected by LGMD2M can also receive genetic counseling to understand the implications of the results, the risk of passing the condition to future generations, and the options available for family planning.

FKTN Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2M Genetic Test

Components: FKTN Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2M Genetic Test

Price: 4400.0 AED

Sample Condition: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card

Report Delivery: 3 to 4 Weeks

Method: NGS Technology

Test type: Neurological Disorders

Doctor: Neurologist

Test Department: Genetics

Pre Test Information: Clinical History of Patient who is going for FKTN Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2M NGS Genetic DNA Test. A Genetic Counselling session to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with FKTN Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2M.

Test Details: The FKTN gene is associated with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2M (LGMD2M). This type of muscular dystrophy is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, meaning that an individual must inherit two copies of the mutated FKTN gene (one from each parent) in order to develop the condition. NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) is a genetic testing method that can be used to analyze multiple genes simultaneously. In the case of LGMD2M, an NGS genetic test would involve sequencing the FKTN gene to identify any mutations or variations that may be present. This can help in confirming a diagnosis of LGMD2M and determining the specific genetic cause of the condition. Genetic testing for LGMD2M can be helpful for individuals who have symptoms suggestive of the condition, as well as for their family members who may be at risk of being carriers or developing the condition themselves. It can also assist in providing information for genetic counseling and family planning decisions. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional or genetic counselor to discuss the appropriateness and implications of genetic testing in specific cases.
