Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) is a degenerative disease that causes muscles to weaken and waste away. The disease typically affects the hips and shoulders, making it difficult for patients to move around. In some cases, the disease can also lead to heart and respiratory problems. While there is no cure for limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, there are some mobility solutions that can help patients live more comfortable and independent lives.
For example, mobility scooters can help patients get around their homes and neighborhoods. Additionally, adaptive equipment such as grab bars and raised toilet seats can make it easier for patients to perform everyday tasks. With the right support, limb-girdle muscular dystrophy need not be a life sentence of confinement.
