Testing for PLN

Your DNA will be tested for the PLN mutation. Each hospital has its own procedure and therefore implements this in its own way. You are never obliged to be tested. We also understand if you (still) do not want to know the answer. Discuss this with a professional and determine what is the best choice for you.

Show Understanding

Everyone deals with the news about PLN in their own way. As a foundation, we advise having understanding for each other and engaging in conversation together. Alone, you go fast; together, you go further! Therefore, stay in conversation and seek support from each other. There is also always the possibility of professional support.

Do it together

Together, we can eliminate PLN from the world! That's why we bring as many carriers, stakeholders, and researchers together as possible. Are you also a carrier or not? You are always welcome to come along to our information sessions or certain events (even if you are not a carrier).

For Close Ones

Are you not a carrier of the PLN mutation but closely involved with someone who carries the mutation? We have 5 tips for you!

Some carriers experience many symptoms due to the disease, including chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, heart rhythm disturbances, and sudden cardiac death (in rare cases). Be understanding and help a carrier to set and respect their boundaries.

Some carriers may not show visible symptoms. However, this does not mean that these symptoms do not exist. Be understanding to carriers who may appear symptom-free from the outside. You never know what they are experiencing.
