Diagnostic Resources

The Jain Foundation has found that at the time of registration, most patients do not have a complete molecular diagnosis. The Jain Foundation guides registrants through the path shown below to help them obtain a definitive diagnosis at the genetic level, including funding dysferlin protein and mutational analysis for US patients when this step is warranted. Please join our patient registry for more information. In addition, please see below for lists of diagnostic resources and physician referrals that are useful for patients with LGMD2B/Miyoshi or other muscular dystrophies.
