: My husband is 32 y.o., adopted.  Recently found out his mother, paternal
aunt have been dx with m.d..  
1.  Is there a screening for this disease,and if so, should he be
        screened?
2.  What are the early symptoms of the disease?
Thank you,
Melanie
Hi Melanie,
I run a support group for muscular dystrophy, and you should know there are many
differt forms of MD.  Some of them are dominantly inherited and some are recessively
inherited.  I can only imagine that you are concerned about your husband and your
children coming down with a form of MD.  If you can find out what form of MD she had
you would be able to pinpoint specific information.  You can read more about MD diseases
