    Do you know which chromosome your CMT is in? You can usually tell the kind of CMT you have by how it’s been passed along in your family.

    7 major types each has subtypes. The only true way to know is a chromosome test. Mine is 1A and had a neurologist order the test. Ancestry DNA will not look for it. I have not tried 23andMe
