Genetic Testing

PreventionGenetics and their team out of Marshfield Wisconsin for being the first lab to offer a 45 gene panel for Ehlers-Danlos syndromes. This test can be ordered by any physician, not only geneticists.

A very special thank you goes out to Christina Zaleski and Dr. Juan Dong, MD, Ph.D., FACMG for their willingness to collaborate with EDS Wisconsin to make this available to our community.

Here is the announcement about genetic testing from Megan’s Walk 2018

First Annual Meagan’s HOPE Memorial Walk for Ehlers Danlos Awareness and Suicide Prevention. You don’t want to miss this!!! ***VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT*** This pertains to people from all over and not only in Wisconsin! PreventionGenetics, Advanced Tele Genetic Counseling, and EDS Wisconsin have created a contract that allows almost anyone the opportunity to get genetic testing without being on a waiting list. There is a form that a patient can bring to their doctor – any doctor- who would need to sign it and send it to ATGC. Between ATGC and PeventionGenetics they will contact the insurance company and try to get the testing covered. The pre-genetic evaluation and post-genetic evaluation can be done by ATGC or the patient’s own doctor if their doctor is comfortable doing that. In addition, PreventionGenetics Musculoskeletal Geneticist Dr Juan Dong has made it so that instead of testing for only the 28 genes previously available as of June 1 they will be able to test for 45 genes. Howeever, the testing process can begin now and the new testing will be run as soon as its available at no additional charge. Get your forms and more information at https://edswi.org/index/resources/eds-genetic-testing/This VERY Special Announcement that WILL CHANGE LIVES! Please share this information with your friends. We 💜 you Meagan!
