Muscular Dystrophy

What Causes Muscular Dystrophy?

In order to deal properly with muscular dystrophy we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow muscular dystrophy to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind muscular dystrophy consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to muscular dystrophy.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause.

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of muscular dystrophy.
