The most common way to diagnosis this disorder is though a physical examination of the child. The physical symptoms are the tell tale signs of Progeria. The disorder can also be, conclusively, diagnosed through gentic testing. This is only done after the doctor has examined the patient's medical records. A simple blood test is used to diagnose Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria.[1]
