Hello doctor,

My youngest son is 2 and a half years old. Currently, he is crawling, and he is a delay in walking. I bought him for the child development clinic at the hospital. They have sent his blood sample to another country, and the result says that he has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Kindly advise what should I do. My son can stand at the sofa, but he refrains from standing at the floor. He can lift his body. Is he able to walk?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is a genetic disorder. I am sorry to say this, as this disease has a poor prognosis. You need to visit a medical genetic specialist. Physical therapy, braces, etc. are common management. Along with that if you want to go for alternative treatment, then try Ayurvedic panchkarma therapy where Ayurvedic massage can be given to your son. It had good results in muscular dystrophy disorders. You need to visit a nearby Ayurveda physician or a panchkarma center. It can help you up to some extent. I hope you understand my point. For more queries, you can consult me.
