Gaucher disease testing

It’s important to diagnose Gaucher disease early on. Why? Because Gaucher disease is progressive. It can be debilitating.

If Gaucher disease runs in your family, or a family member is a carrier, it is recommended you get tested for the condition.

Gaucher disease can be diagnosed through these different tests:

ENZYME TESTING

Enzyme testing measures glucocerebrosidase activity in the blood or urine. Glucocerebrosidase is the enzyme that is not working correctly in a person with Gaucher disease.

GENETIC TESTING

Genetic testing helps determine if a person is a carrier for Gaucher disease or has the condition.
