The Muscular Dystrophy Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide information on Muscular Dystrophy and to help people with Muscular Dystrophy find assistance paying for their medications.

According to the NIH (National Institute of Health), Muscular Dystrophy refers to a group of more than 30 inherited diseases that cause muscle weakness and muscle loss. Some forms of MD appear in infancy or childhood, while others may not appear until middle age or later. The different muscular dystrophies vary in who they affect and the symptoms. All forms of MD grow worse as the person's muscles get weaker. Most people with MD eventually lose the ability to walk.
