The muscular dystrophies are a class of diseases that are believed to be genetic in origin. They affect skeletal muscles and often also heart muscle.
Symptoms include muscle weakness and progressive muscle wasting. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), the most common and a very severe form of the disease, is caused by a genetic trait which prevents the production of dystrophin, a protein necessary for muscle growth and health. Without dystrophin, muscles are fragile and are easily damaged.
Over time, so much damage builds up that the body can’t repair it and muscles waste away, causing progressive disability.
Muscle tissue is formed from bundles of muscle fibre cells, but muscles also contain many other types of cells, including stem cells. Stem cells are part of the body’s inbuilt repair system.
Stem cells can generate other types of cells and can also make copies of themselves. Skeletal muscles contain a type of stem cell called satellite cells. When muscle fibres are damaged they send chemical signals to satellite cells telling them to form new muscle fibres or to fuse with existing fibres to repair the damage.
At the same time, some satellite cells copy themselves to ensure enough stem cells are available to continue to repair and replace muscle fibres for the next time they are needed.
In the case of MD, muscle fibers do not repair themselves.
The current thinking is that because the muscles are constantly damaged in DMD the repair burden placed on satellite cells is so big that they become exhausted and lose their ability to copy themselves. Satellite cells are essential for muscle repair so as the number of these cells decreases, the muscle becomes less and less able to repair itself. Instead damaged muscle fibres are replaced by fat cells and scar tissue, weakening the muscle until it can no longer work effectively.
Right now there is no cure for DMD but there is on going research in the area of stem cells which looks promising. Treatments aim to strengthen patients’ muscles and reduce some of the symptoms of the disease.
Steroids are routinely used to slow down muscle wasting but they have many side effects, including weakening of bones leading to osteoporosis. Physiotherapy may help to maintain muscle strength and flexibility for a time. Researchers are hoping that, in the future, they may be able to repair or replace damaged muscle fibres using different strategies, including transplantation of dystrophin-producing cells to restoring muscle function.
While this research is ongoing, some products out there could help to strengthen the basic muscle building system. Here are some that we have found:
The products are listed in order of importance but for dealing with a complex issue like MD, you need to try and take at least the top three, and all would be best. It should take less than a month to start seeing some improvement but will take up to a full year to see significant results.
Quantities are for an adult.
I'm listing these in order of overall importance, but they all should be used if possible.
