Could there be a cure or treatment for muscular dystrophy?

Treatment, no cure: If you are referring to duchenne muscular dystrophy, there is no cure at this point. It is progressive disease where muscle is replaced by fibrotic tissue. Steroids have been shown to increase the length of time a child can walk, decrease respiratory issues and even decrease the need for scoliosis surgery. It is not a panacea and should be discussed between doctor and family.

How diagnosed?: First, you need a proper diagnosis. Next you need a competent doctor to evaluate you in a thorough manner. Muscle disease can affect breathing, swallowing, back, hips, knees, ankles, as well as heart function. There is risk for anesthesia as well as risk for toxic effects from certain medications and antibiotics. You may benefit from therapy and need special equipment. Discuss with your md.

Muscular dystrophy: Treatment for this disorder is most commonly done by neurologists that specialize in muscular disorders which is not all neurologist. So I would work with your local primary care doctor and see if one can be identified in your area that can help out.
