The SGCD gene is associated with a specific form of muscular dystrophy known as limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2F (LGMD2F). This condition is characterized by progressive weakness and wasting of the limb muscles, particularly those around the hips and shoulders, making it part of the broader group of muscular dystrophies affecting the limb-girdle area. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, meaning that an individual must inherit two copies of the mutated gene, one from each parent, to be affected by the condition.

A genetic test for LGMD2F focuses on identifying mutations in the SGCD gene that are responsible for the condition. This test is crucial for confirming the diagnosis, understanding the progression of the disease, and making informed decisions about management and treatment options. It can also provide valuable information for family planning purposes.

In the United Arab Emirates, DNA Labs UAE offers this specific genetic test. The cost of the test is 4400 AED. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to ensure accurate and reliable results. By opting for this test at DNA Labs UAE, individuals suspected of having LGMD2F or families with a history of the condition can gain a deeper understanding of their genetic status and take proactive steps towards managing the disease effectively.

SGCD Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2F Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the SGCD Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2F Genetic Test at a cost of AED 4400.0. This test is used to diagnose Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, autosomal recessive type 2F (LGMD2F) which primarily affects the muscles in the hips and shoulders, causing progressive muscle weakness and wasting.

Test Details

The SGCD gene is associated with LGMD2F, a genetic disorder that is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. This means that an individual must inherit two copies of the mutated gene (one from each parent) in order to develop the condition.

Our NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) technology allows for the analysis of multiple genes simultaneously. In the case of LGMD2F, NGS genetic testing can identify mutations in the SGCD gene, providing a definitive diagnosis of the condition. This type of testing is more comprehensive and efficient compared to traditional sequencing methods.

Test Components and Price

The SGCD Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2F Genetic Test is priced at AED 4400.0. The test requires a blood sample or extracted DNA, or one drop of blood on an FTA card.

Report Delivery

Once the sample is received, the report will be delivered within 3 to 4 weeks.

Test Type and Doctor

This test falls under the category of Neurological Disorders and is performed by our team of experienced Neurologists in the Genetics department.

Pre Test Information

Before undergoing the SGCD Gene Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive type 2F Genetic Test, it is recommended to provide the clinical history of the patient. Additionally, a Genetic Counselling session will be conducted to draw a pedigree chart of family members affected with LGMD2F.

If you suspect that you or someone you know may have LGMD2F, we advise consulting with a healthcare professional or a genetic counselor. They can guide you through the process of genetic testing and provide appropriate medical management and support.
