The LMNA gene plays a crucial role in the structure and function of cells in the human body, particularly in the encoding of proteins that make up the nuclear envelope. Mutations in the LMNA gene can lead to various genetic disorders, including Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) autosomal dominant type 1B. This condition is characterized by progressive weakness and wasting of the limb-girdle muscles, which are the muscles around the shoulders and hips. Early symptoms often include difficulty running or climbing stairs, and the condition can progressively lead to more severe mobility issues.

To diagnose this specific form of muscular dystrophy, genetic testing is essential. DNA Labs UAE offers a comprehensive genetic test for the LMNA Gene Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy autosomal dominant type 1B. This test is designed to identify mutations in the LMNA gene that are responsible for the condition. By analyzing a patient’s DNA, the test can confirm a diagnosis of LGMD1B, which is crucial for the management and treatment of the disease.

The cost of the LMNA Gene Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy autosomal dominant type 1B Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE is 4400 AED. This investment can provide individuals and families with critical information regarding the genetic basis of the condition, enabling informed decisions about treatment options and lifestyle adjustments. Furthermore, it can also offer insights into the risk of passing the condition on to future generations, which is invaluable information for family planning purposes. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by experienced professionals to ensure accurate and reliable testing results.

LMNA Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal dominant type 1B Genetic Test

Introduction

The LMNA gene is associated with a specific type of muscular dystrophy called limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal dominant type 1B (LGMD1B). This type of muscular dystrophy is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, meaning that an affected individual has a 50% chance of passing the condition on to each of their children.

Test Details

  • Test Name: LMNA Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal dominant type 1B Genetic Test
  • Components: Blood or Extracted DNA or One drop Blood on FTA Card
  • 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 LMNA Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal dominant type 1B NGS Genetic DNA Test. A Genetic Counselling session to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with LMNA Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal dominant type 1B

Test Methodology

NGS stands for next-generation sequencing, which is a technology used for genetic testing. NGS genetic testing can analyze multiple genes simultaneously and can be used to identify mutations or variations in the LMNA gene that are associated with LGMD1B. This test can help confirm a diagnosis of LGMD1B and provide information about the specific genetic changes that are present. It is important to note that a genetic test alone may not be sufficient to diagnose LGMD1B, as the clinical presentation and other factors also need to be considered.

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling is recommended before and after undergoing genetic testing to discuss the implications of the results and to address any concerns or questions.
