This form of muscular dystrophy relates to the face, shoulders and upper arms. Symptoms in FSHD MD such as difficulty in opening and closing the eyes and smiling, difficulties in talking, swallowing and breathing, and hearing problems usually appear in teenagers but may appear later in life up to the age of 40. Both sexes are affected similarly.

Idera presents new data on possible treatment for FSHD MD. Find out more here.

    I am the father of a family affected with SMA-LED, also my daughter, and grandson are affected… We have been biopsied by Dr. Michael Shy of the MDA research team.. My age is 82, my daughter is 59 and my grandson is 27, is there any answer to my question?????

  2. IS THERE ANY TREATMENT FOR DUCHENNE? MY GRAND SON WAS DIAGNOSED AT NEW BORN THROUGH MEDICAL TESTING. NO ONE IN MY FAMILY HAS MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY. HE IS NOW ALMOST FOUR, AND JUST A LITTLE BEHIND WITH SPEACH AND TRIPPING, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, IS GROWING TALL. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THERE IS TESTING GOING ON AFTER ALL THESE YEARS OF TELETHONS AND MILLIONS DONATED. I CAN’T BARE THE THOUGHT OF MY GRANDSON HAVING THIS AFTER LEARNING TO SPEAK AND WALK AND ALL THINGS HE KNOWS, HE IS VERY SMART. PLEASE TELL ME AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, HOPEFULLY GOOD, THANK YOU,
