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.
There are almost 30 different forms of Muscular Dystrophy that vary in symptoms, problems and severities. As the disease is related to muscular weakness, it can be possible that babies, teens or adults can express the muscular problems at any phase of their development. The severe form of MD, is observed in babies especially boys, who can experience the swift and severe muscle weakness and wasting; dying their late teens to early 20’s.
