Muscular Dystrophy


I have a 9 mth old son, he is not able to hold is head and is weak physically. Mentally he is strong and understands everything. We visited doctors and they asked to conduct EMG, CPK tests..we conducted the same and found CPK levels at 2200.00 and in EMG report it was found that there was problems in muscle tissue and doctors said that there is a possible case of Muscular Dystrophy. Doctor asked us to conduct MRI brain and 2D ecg of heart. we conducted both the tests and the reports were normal.

None of the family members from mother or father end have suffered from any genetic problems.

Suggest some remedy for the same.

Re: Muscular Dystrophy

The only sure diagnosis is a muscle biopsy, usually a small piece of muscle taken from the thigh.
