About Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy, Duchenne Type, also known as duchenne muscular dystrophy, is related to muscular dystrophy, becker type and facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy 1, and has symptoms including waddling gait and weakness. An important gene associated with Muscular Dystrophy, Duchenne Type is DMD (Dystrophin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cell differentiation - expanded index and miRNAs involvement in the immune response in sepsis. The drugs Carvedilol and Ramipril have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include Adipose and Umbilical Cord, and related phenotypes are scoliosis and respiratory insufficiency

Major Symptoms of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder that affects muscle strength and function. The major symptoms include muscle weakness, muscle wasting, and difficulty maintaining muscle tone. In addition, individuals with DMD may experience joint pain, muscle stiffness, and limited mobility. The disease is usually inherited from one's parents, and there is no cure for it.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

The suitable lifestyle for people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy includes the following points:

1. Exercise: Patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy usually experience muscle atrophy and weakness, so appropriate physical exercise can help maintain muscle function, improve cardiopulmonary function, and strengthen body immunity. It is recommended that patients engage in low-intensity aerobic exercise, such as walking, swimming, cycling, etc. , to avoid muscle damage caused by excessive exercise.

2. Maintain a normal diet: Patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy have weak immune systems and are susceptible to various diseases. Therefore, maintaining a regular diet is very important to maintain good health. Patients should eat more foods rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, such as chicken, fish, beans, vegetables and fruits.

3. Maintain psychological balance: Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a chronic disease, and patients need to face the inconvenience and challenges caused by the disease for a long time.
