Muscular dystrophy is a group of disorders that gradually weaken and stiffen the muscles. The most frequent kind is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). It is caused by a defective gene which is responsible for producing dystrophin, an important protein in muscle cells. Standing, moving, and stair climbing are difficult for individuals with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
The gene that produces the protein dystrophin is disrupted in people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This protein is responsible for keeping muscles strong and preventing damage.
Regular testing can help the patients to assess their present health condition and take preventative measures.
A Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy diagnosis is imperative to assess an affected person's present state.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy affects the limb muscles closest to the trunk first, then the ones farther away. It can also cause heart problems. The cardiac damage caused by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy can become life-threatening with time, perhaps as early as the adolescent years.
Due to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the diaphragm and other muscles may weaken, making breathing difficult.
Hence, a thorough Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy testing is necessary for accurate evaluation and treatment.
