Can measuring arylsulfatase B enzyme activity help determine if someone is a carrier of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI?

Determining if someone is a carrier of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI by looking at their arylsulfatase B enzyme levels in the blood or in skin cells is possible. However, another form of carrier testing for Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI is done by genetic testing that looks for changes in a person's ARSB genes.
