    Very mild form of Beckers, deletion 45-55

    Hi, I have a very mild form of Beckers, I was genetically tested and I have a deletion of Exxonís 45-55 which allows my body to produce almost a 90% dystrophin. I live a pretty normal life. Iím 26 years old and have shown no signs of slowing down. Doctors are always blown away at how good of shape Iím in. Iíve stayed very active my whole life, I walk and take hikes almost every day. Doctors said that staying active would be vital to slowing the progression and that I should keep doing what Iím doing. I even started weight lifting 3 months ago and Iím actually able to build muscle which is probably unheard of for someone with Beckerís. So thatís why Iím here. My doctor said theyíve never seen anyone with my deletion. Anyone else have little to no symptoms and carry the deletion 45-55?
