Muscular dystophy and weight


A healthy diet and careful weight control are vital in all forms of muscular dystrophy so that already weakened muscles don’t have the additional burden of carrying excess weight. 

Losing weight not only helps the sufferers to move more easily, but it also assists their carers, who may have to lift them. In the later stages of the disease, there will be less strain on the weakened respiratory muscles.

To keep their weight under control, sufferers should try not to eat snacks between meals, cut down on high kilojoule foods and eat plenty of fibre. Fibre is not only filling but it encourages regular bowel habits, relieving the constipation often associated with the disease. Sufferers should not go on a crash diet as this could cause muscle wasting and they should eat plenty of lean protein.
