Muscular Dystrophy

Overview

Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of genetic disorders characterized by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles. It is caused by mutations in genes responsible for the structure and function of muscle cells. As a result, the affected muscles gradually lose their strength over time, leading to difficulties in movement, mobility, and muscle coordination.

There are several types of muscular dystrophy, with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) being one of the most common and severe forms. DMD primarily affects boys and usually becomes evident in early childhood.

There are more than 600 muscles in a person's body. These muscles are helpful in providing structure and form. Along with this, it also helps in the movement of the body, so that the essential functions of a person like walking, jumping, running and breathing are completed.

Ayurvedic treatment of muscular dystrophy aims to address imbalances in the body's doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha) and improve affected individuals' overall quality of life.

Ayurvedic treatment for muscular dystrophy helps to reduce the symptoms and works on the root of the disease such as 

  1. Progressive muscle weakness
  2. Poor muscle coordination
  3. Muscle cramps and stiffness
  4. Enlarged calf muscles (in some types of MD)
  5. Problems with balance and posture

Causes of Muscular Dystrophy

Some factors and risk factors may be responsible for developing muscular dystrophy, which includes -

  • Gene defect

To keep the body muscles healthy and prevent them from getting damaged, many genes make proteins that protect muscle fibers, strengthen muscles and protect them from injury. But whenever there is a problem in one of these genes, it starts making the wrong protein, the wrong amount, or damaged protein, which leads to the problem of muscular dystrophy.

  • Genetic mutation

Genetic mutations inherited from parents are the specific cause of each form of muscular dystrophy. It is caused by the presence of abnormal genes that interfere with the way of proteins in the body that develop muscle. Abnormal genes (mutations) interfere with the production of proteins needed to build healthy muscles and cause muscular dystrophy.

  • Congenital defect

Sometimes, due to some reason, there is a defect in the egg or fetus growing in the womb of a pregnant woman, due to which the muscles of the born child become weak and they start having problems with muscular dystrophy.

  • Family history

Muscular dystrophy can be a disease that is passed down from one generation to the next in the family. If a family member has ever had a problem with muscular dystrophy during their lifetime, the problem may be passed on to the other member as a result of a problem in their genes. 

  • Gender

Muscular dystrophy can occur in both sexes and all ages and ethnicities. However, the most common type, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, usually occurs in young boys. People with a family history of muscular dystrophy have a higher risk of developing the disease or passing it on to their children.

  • Underweight

When a person has a low body weight as measured by body mass index, they are more prone to muscular dystrophy. People with an average body mass index of 17.3 BMI, or less, are at higher risk for this type of problem.

  • Other reason

Poor lung function, high blood pressure during breathing, poor lifestyle, the high blood concentration of proteins associated with heart damage, active genetic structure in specific chromosomes, etc. are other factors that may play a role in increasing the risk of muscular dystrophy.

 

Prevention from Muscular Dystrophy

Certain measures can help manage and slow down its symptoms, including -

  • Regular consumption of a healthy diet rich in nutrients prevents the weakening of a person's muscles and strengthens them.
  • Certain types of exercise, workouts, yoga, etc. help a person to keep the muscles healthy.
  • In addition to preventing obesity, a person needs to maintain a healthy body weight also.
  • One should give up habits like smoking and excessive consumption of alcohol to protect their lungs and heart.
  • Pregnant women should take proper care of their health and avoid stress etc.
  • Knowing a family history of muscular dystrophy can help prevent it from progressing to another member.
  • Vitamin D helps remove muscle weakness, so a person should spend some time in the morning sun as well as consume enough food containing vitamin D.

Types of Muscular Dystrophy

Some of the main types of muscular dystrophy include -

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

It is the most common type of muscular dystrophy, which is caused by a defect in the gene that makes the dystrophin protein in the body. This protein works to strengthen the muscles in the body. Due to its deficiency, the muscles start getting damaged and the person gradually becomes weak. This type of problem mostly occurs in boys between the age of 2 to 6 years. Symptoms include frequent falls, stunted growth, difficulty lying down, running, walking, muscle aches, and stiffness. Due to Duchenne muscular dystrophy, children can sometimes suffer from heart problems.

  • Baker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD)

In this type of muscular dystrophy, the symptoms appear more slowly and are relatively less dangerous. Its main symptoms are muscle weakness and breakdown, which usually do not appear until the age of 10 years. Sometimes their symptoms are not visible even till the person becomes an adult. People suffering from it have trouble with the heart, breathing, bones, muscles, and joints.

  • Facioscapulohumeral (FSHD)

Muscle weakness usually affects the face, shoulders, hips, and lower legs. Due to this, the troubled person has trouble raising the hand, whistling, and closing their eyes tightly. It usually begins in adolescence but can develop in childhood or as early as age 50.

  • Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD)

In this type of muscular dystrophy, the muscles of the hip and shoulder are usually affected first. Its onset usually begins in childhood or adolescence. Generally, it can occur in both men and women. It weakens the muscles of the arms, shoulders, thighs, and hips of the patient. People with this type of muscular dystrophy may have difficulty lifting the front of the leg.

  • Myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD)

It is characterized by the inability of the muscle to relax after contraction. The muscles of the face and neck are usually the first to be affected. People with this form usually have long, slender faces, drooping eyelids, and swan-like necks. It is more troublesome in adolescents. This includes muscle weakness and eye and heart problems. The person also feels difficulty in swallowing.

  • Emery-Dreyfus Muscular Dystrophy (EDMD)

Complications of Muscular Dystrophy

A person suffering from the problem of muscular dystrophy may face many complications which include -

  • Some people develop severe muscle weakness and lose their ability to walk forever.
  • Most people's condition worsens over time, and some people may lose the ability to walk, talk, or care for themselves.
