Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is a group of disorders characterized by aprogressive loss of muscle mass and consequent loss of strength.

The most common form of muscular dystrophy - Duchenne muscular dystrophy - typically affects young boys, but other variations can strike in adulthood.

Currently, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy, but certain physical and medicinal treatments can improve symptoms and slow the disease's progression.

This article will look at the diagnosis, symptoms and treatments for muscular dystrophy, as well as examining current research into future treatments.
