Diagnostic Resources

The Jain Foundation has found that most patients who contact the foundation do not have a complete molecular diagnosis. The Jain Foundation has partnered with several other LGMD family foundations to create lgmd-diagnosis.org which offers free genetic testing for individuals suffering from muscular dystrophy to help them obtain a definitive and specific genetic diagnosis.  Currently we are only able to offer the free genetic sequencing to individuals living in the United States.  However, we hope to eventually expand this program internationally.   Therefore, we encourage everyone to take the eligibility quiz available at lgmd-diagnosis.org

In addition, please see below for lists of diagnostic resources and physician referrals that are useful for patients with LGMD2B/Miyoshi in other countries or other muscular dystrophies.
