To whom may concern,
I’m currently working on mapping LOINC. I’m struggling with finding the LOINC code for Liddle’s syndrome DNA analysis. Which LOINC code do you recommend us to map with?
Thank you in advance,

Genetic tests in LOINC are typically named based on the genes tested. The disease names should be included as synonyms (related names) so users can find the tests when searching in LOINC. For Liddle Syndrome, these genes are likely SCNN1B and SCNN1G, which we currently do not have codes for in LOINC. We welcome a request for new terms. For information on how to submit a request, please visit https://loinc.org/submissions/.
