    Muscular Dystrophy - Treatment with Global Stem Cell Care

    Muscular dystrophy is an inherited muscular disease. Particularly in this condition, the muscle fibers get damaged, and this condition is a progressive one.

    In this condition, the muscles get weak, and there is also a loss of muscle mass. The main cause of this condition is abnormal genes that cause muscle degeneration.

    Right from childhood, this condition starts to form, and from then on, the muscles continue to get weaker and weaker. In the extreme conditions of this disease, the patient’s muscle might get so damaged that a wheelchair will be required for movement.

    Stem Cell Treatment for Muscular Dystrophy in India

    Muscular dystrophy is a type of inherited disorder that can be the reason for muscle weakness and atrophy. There are nine main types of muscular dystrophy, some with subtypes. Muscular dystrophy symptoms are similar in all varieties. Each type of MD causes weakness and degeneration of the muscles involved in voluntary movements, such as walking.

    With stem cell treatment, this condition’s symptoms can be improved, and discomfort can be reduced. Correct diagnosis and treatment are initiated by the medical team of Global Stem Cell Care.

    Do you know about Muscular Dystrophy

    Muscle dystrophy is one of the major inherited diseases in which the muscles tend to become weak over time. Particularly, in this condition, the muscles become weak, and even the muscles of the heart and other organs become weak.

    The different types of muscular dystrophy are Myotonic, Duchenne, Becker, Limb-girdle, Facioscapulohumeral, Congenital, Oculopharyngeal, Distal, and Emery-Dreifuss.

    The major effect of this condition is on the muscles, and it is an inherited genetic mistake that does not allow developing a protein in the body that plays an important role in building muscle strength.

    The children who are born with this condition do not show any symptoms in the first few years of life, but then suddenly the symptoms such as walking problems, difficulty in raising the foot, and falling might show up.

    The condition in the children becomes more prominent, and the muscles continue to become weak. They might also lose the ability to sit, walk, or to lift objects. The serious effect of this condition might show up n the muscles of the heart and other organs, which might cause breathing problems. In all the different muscular dystrophy, the weakness of muscles is common. Through the treatment of stem cell therapy by Global Stem Cell Care, it is possible to treat this condition.

    Symptoms of Muscular Dystrophy

    The condition of muscular dystrophy is the weakness in the muscles, which is caused due to the genes of a person. It is vital to the symptoms of this condition so that they can be identified at the earliest and proper treatment can be started to stop the degeneration of the muscles.

    The following are the symptoms of Muscular Dystrophy:

    • Problem in standing, lying down, sitting, breathing, walking, and falling
    • Weakness of muscles in hips and legs
    • Suffering from breathing problems, learning problems, and behavior problems
    • Child walking on toes and frequent falls

    Diagnosis

    Global Stem Cell Care provides an accurate diagnosis of muscular dystrophy. The doctors ensure that proper examination is done of the patient so that the treatment can be done effectively. The main focus of the doctors is on the family medical history, test reports, and physical exam.

    The following are the tests that are performed by the doctors for the diagnosis:

    1. A muscle biopsy (the removal and examination of a small sample of muscle tissue)
    2. DNA (genetic) testing
    3. Electromyography or nerve conduction tests (which uses electrodes to test muscle and/or nerve function)
    4. Blood enzyme tests (to look for the presence of creatine
    5. Kinase, which reveals deterioration of muscle fibers)

    • Periodic falls
    • Pain in muscles
    • Massive calf muscle
    • Delayed growth
    • Stiffness
    • Wadding gait
    • Constant fall
    • Large calf muscle
    • Learning disabilities
    • Stiffness and muscle pain
    • Tardy milestone
    • Walking on the toes
    • Frequent stiffness of muscle
    • Pain in the face and neck muscles
    • Learning illness
    • Bowing eyelids
    • Swanlike necks
    • Thin, long faces
    • Facial muscle weakness
    • Muscle stiffness and pain
    • Sagging eyelids
    • Atypical appearance of shoulder blade muscles
    • Liberal destruction in hip muscles
    • Decrease efficiency in heart muscles
    • Muscles of hip/shoulder are affected
    • Stiffness
    • Muscle stiffness
    • Perpetual fall
    • Difficulty in lifting the toe part of the legs
    • Muscle pain and discomfort

    There are numerous causes of muscular dystrophy; the significant ones of them are as follows:

    1. Familial Inheritance of the condition.
    2. Gene mutations that occur spontaneously.
    3. Due to intimate relation-linked (X-linked) disorder.
    4. Gender and Age-based developments
    5. Environmental Factors
    6. Protein Deficiency
    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
    This is the medical use of oxygen at an upper level than atmospheric pressure. The equipment necessary comprises a pressure chamber, which might be of rigid or flexible construction and a means of supplying 100% oxygen into the respiratory system. Published research shows that HBOT upsurges the lifetime of stem cells after inoculation and offers an oxygen-rich atmosphere for the body to function optimally.
    Occupational Therapy
    Occupational Therapy
    It focuses on daily activity to help those with muscular dystrophy become more independent, gain access to community services and improve coping skills.
    Physiotherapy
    Physiotherapy
    This is a physical medicine and rehabilitation speciality that, by using mechanical force and actions, remediates damages and promotes flexibility, function, and quality of life via examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.
    Speech Therapy
    Speech Therapy
    It helps conserve muscle strength by integrating specific techniques like shower speech, pausing between breaths, etc.
    Dietary Modification
    Dietary Modification
    At Global Stem Cell Care, dieticians are highly trained to create customised meal plans that cater to each patient’s needs, likes, and food preferences. This is necessary for our patients' wellness because it considers everything from their medical history to possible allergies. However, we understand that sometimes what may be good for you diet-wise isn’t necessarily feasible from a time or budget point of view, so our dieticians try to get you started on a healthy meal plan that is as convenient as possible.
    Corticosteroid Drug Treatment
    Corticosteroid Drug Treatment
    Helps strengthen muscle functions and promotes slow muscle deterioration.
    • The main stage of the treatment of Muscular Dystrophy is the implantation stage in which the stem cells are implanted into the patients. After the successful implantation of the stem cells, the regeneration process begins in the body that helps to provide relief to the patient.
    • The Mesenchymal Stem Cells are used for the stem cell treatment of muscular dystrophy.
    • The stem cells are implanted in the body of the patient through the method of infusion that is chosen by the doctor. After the implantation process, the doctors make sure that the patients get the after care and medical support.

    Implantation

    The following is the structure that is followed during the implantation stage:

    MECHANISM

    Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) can help boot out the disease symptoms via the following mechanisms, centered on their distinctively different characteristics:

    • MSCs can result in skeletal muscle regeneration. MSCs transplantation might improve patients’ clinical symptoms via defective gene correction and muscle cell regeneration.
    • MSCs results in an apparent therapeutic advantage in disease models via their immunomodulatory effect, another underlying mechanism of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) for treating Muscular Dystrophy (MD).
    • MSCs have myotube generation and dystrophic expression potentials resulting in muscle strength upsurge in patients.
