Childhood muscular dystrophy (MD) is a medical problem that dynamically incapacitates the body’s muscles. It’s caused by faulty genes that hinder the body from making the proteins that are expected to develop and maintain healthy muscles.
A child who has MD gradually loses the ability to do things like walk, sit up, stand, breathe in successfully, and move the arms and hands. This failure can provoke other medical issues.
There’s no solution for muscular dystrophy. Medicines and treatment can help regulate symptoms and moderate the course of the disease.
