About the offer

Kennedy's disease is an uncommon disorder that mainly impacts men. It happens because of a problem in a specific gene in the androgen receptor (AR) gene, resulting in abnormally expanded CAG repeats. It means a pattern of three DNA parts repeats in a row within a gene. In the cause of Kennedy's disease, more than 36 repeats are discovered. It causes issues with a protein connected to male traits and lower motor neuron disorders, leading to nerve signals from the brain to the brain stem and spinal cord. Then muscles deteriorate, and weakness is progressed. The diagnosis starts with the patient's medical history and family background analysis. Then, they do a physical exam to check muscle strength, coordination, and reflexes. Next, some standard lab tests are done. For example, a DNA test blood test for the AR gene can confirm the diagnosis by checking for CAG repeats. Some evaluations include imaging studies and tests for checking the health of muscles and nerves by measuring their electrical activity. A Kennedy disease diagnosis helps the patient and their healthcare team verify a diagnosis, assess a disorder's intensity, and create a suitable treatment plan. Also, it helps ensure the patient receives the proper treatment and support for their condition.
