How can you help our CDG community? It is easy! Share among your social media and other channels the information we make available within this section and website. This raises awareness, accelerates diagnosis, and secures better care and management for our CDG children and adults!

Families with CDG often have a hard time finding diagnostic and research labs that know about it. In many parts of the world, people may never get the definitive diagnosis they desperately need to get the right care because they can't get to a lab or to a clinician who suspects CDG. We are making a map of CDG by putting all of this information together, and you are welcome to tell us about labs that are leading the way in CDG diagnosis and research by filling out the survey form below. Moreover, CDG patient groups can help point you in the right direction.

Contact us and we will help you connect with the appropriate organisation!

You can complement this information by looking at Orphanet which provides a directory of medical laboratories providing diagnostic tests and research projects.

What are the benefits of putting your reference centre and/or specialist on our World CDG diagnostic and/or research laboratories map? This powerful tool can be used in many ways, such as to (1)  help patients find a professional in their own country and to provide a platform for future diagnostic and/or research and analysis efforts that will be done in collaboration (2) accelerate definitive correct diagnosis and decrease time to diagnosis, (3) create an enabling network that can boost the co-organisation of events and training among different stakeholders, and (4) amplify opportunities to advance diagnosis and care for people living with CDG and their family members. This avoids unnecessary tests and treatments.
Would you like to feature your work in CDG or a reference care centre that leads care and management for people living with CDG in your country in our CDG Map? It’s easy! Complete the CDG Map Collecting Survey , found at the end of this webpage!
