What is "myotonic dystrophy"?

Myotonic dystrophy is a genetic disorder that affects the muscles and other systems in the body. It causes muscle weakness and stiffness, along with a variety of other symptoms such as muscle wasting, cloudy eye lenses, heart problems, and thinking difficulties. Myotonic dystrophy can vary widely in intensity and when it starts, with some people having symptoms from birth and others developing them later in life. Treatment focuses on managing symptoms and may include physical therapy, medications to address specific symptoms, and regular monitoring for potential problems. Since it is a genetic condition, there is currently no cure, but research into potential treatments is ongoing.
