What is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy?

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most occurring type of muscular dystrophy mainly affecting boys of age around four years. It is the most common type of muscular dystrophy occurring in patients. Usually muscle weakness starts in boys of this age and gets worse day by day. Loss of muscle mass firstly occurs in the thighs and pelvis followed by the arms. There are rare chances of developing duchenne muscular dystrophy in the girls.

Causes of DMD

Cause of duchenne muscular dystrophy involves the defect in one of the genes. The information required by the body to produce proteins and performing various body functions is stored in the genes of an individual. But in a patient of DMD, the dystrophin protein generating gene becomes defected and incapable of doing normal functioning. The dystrophin protein is required by the body for keeping muscles healthy and strong. It also provides protection to body muscles from any kind of injury.

DMD is more common in boys as DMD genes get passed from the parents to their children. That’s why scientists also termed DMD as sex-linked diseases because a large group of genes, known as chromosomes that helps to know if the baby is a girl or boy, is connected with DMD.

In some cases, it is also observed that a patient with no DMD family history can also get affected when his genes get damaged on their own.

Symptoms of DMD

In a DMD child, symptoms are observed at the age of 6 years. Leg muscles are affected mainly and this is the reason children suffering from DMD start walking very late as compared with normal children of the same age. Once they walk, they may fall down and face trouble in going up-stairs or getting up from the floor.

  • Gene test: The doctor can also recommend a gene test to check any change in the dystrophin gene which progresses DMD.
  • Muscle biopsy: It is done by removing a tiny piece of muscle by using a needle. The sample will be placed under a microscope to check for decreased levels of dystrophin, which is not present in DMD patients.
