The Different Ways of Testing for Duchenne and the Appearance of a New Method

Duchenne through laboratory analyses

Laboratory analyses usually display a big increase of up to 20 times the normal amount of muscular enzymes called CK, aldolasa, GOT and LDH. Most studies show that this increased CK level is also present on the mothers of those children with Duchenne even though they do not display any symptoms of Duchenne.

Many children actually show up increases in the levels of different transaminases (enzymes) and not only CK.
