Muscular Dystrophy

I and my wife had lost all hopes. But, I appreciate and feel proud for the strength and courage shown by my wife. She sacrifi ced everything for her son. For almost three years, there were no festivals or celebrations for her. She ran to each and every hospital, which were suggested by people. But, someone has rightly said that, “your achievement is a refl ection of your struggle”. Finally, On 26 Sep 09, I came across a book, “Healthy Living with Food Supplements” written by Kamayani Naresh. I talked to Naresh Sir for almost 20 minutes, which gave me ‘a ray of hope’ and I decided to give food supplements to my child.Muscular dystrophy is a group of disorders recognized by progressive muscle weakness and loss of muscle ti ssue.

Nine diseases including Duchenne, Becker, limb girdle, congenital, facioscapulohumeral, myotonic, oculopharyngeal, distal, and Emery-Dreifuss have always been classifi ed as muscular dystrophy but there are more than 100 diseases in total with similariti es to muscular dystrophy. Most types of muscular dystrophy result in multi -system disorders including the heart, gastrointesti nal and nervous systems, endocrine glands, skin, eyes and other organs, mainly the brain. The conditi on may also lead to mood swings and learning diffi culti es.
