  • I am 60 years old, and have not been diagnosed with this. However I have lived in the dark with many of the symptoms. I live in constant pain, and numerous doctors over the years could not tell me what is wrong with me. My question is how and where can I get genetic testing? It's too late for any help for me, however my daughter is about to have her first child, and I am worried my granddaughter may have the RUN2 gene. Click here for answer

  • My 25-year-old son has cleidocranial dysplasia. His condition is mild, but he has endured treatments for hearing loss and orthodontic conditions. We were told at the time of his diagnosis that his children would have a 50/50 chance of inheriting this condition. Is that still the case? Are there any treatments or therapies to prevent him from passing this on?
