Muscular Dystrophy can be classified as the disease with inborn genetic manipulation, which damage and weaken the muscular structure and strength over the period of time. It has been observed that the people with MD, have missing or incorrect information passed by their gene during the production of an important protein known as the Dystrophin; that is required for normal muscular functions of the body such as walking, swallowing, coordination, etc. Continue reading

Muscular dystrophy, hereditary disease that causes progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal muscles. Of the several types of muscular dystrophy, the more common are Duchenne, facioscapulohumeral, Becker, limb-girdle, and myotonic dystrophy. In all of these there is usually early evidence of degeneration and then regeneration of some muscle fibres. Continue reading

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment …

Posted: April 14, 2018 at 4:46 am

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is one of the most common and devastating types of muscular degeneration and results in progressive muscle weakness, starting at young age.1,2 A genetic disorder, DMD primarily affects boys and is characterized by loss of the protein dystrophin in muscle cells as a result of genetic mutations.3,4 The associated cell damage and uncontrolled influx of calcium leads to mitochondrial dysfunction and reduced energy production in muscle cells.5 This contributes to progressive muscle weakness and loss of muscle tissue over time including a decline in pulmonary function leading to trouble breathing.4,5 The average age at which boys will start to show symptoms of DMD is 3 to 5 years, and they are commonly unable to walk by their teenage years.1,4,6 As the disease progresses, the muscles affected include those needed for breathing (respiration),causing a problem called respiratory insufficiency that leads to worsening breathing.This means that patients with DMD suffer from a decline in respiratory function, may need support to breathe and may have more frequent lung infections.79 Other typical symptoms include a weak cough, chest infections, daytime sleepiness, headaches, suffering from nightmares, or other respiratory and pulmonary infections.
