I know that DMD is passed on from mom if she is a carrier. I have not had genetic counseling and I have done some research on the internet, but I have a strange situation. I do not know if I am a carrier because we have had some trouble with Riley's bloodwork and I was waiting for his before I get tested. The funny thing is, there is no MD on my mother's side of the family and I do not have brothers, but there are a lot of relatives on my father's side with DMD and other types of MD! My father has about 6 cousins with MD. 3 were brothers who all had DMD, one other had DMD, one had another type (unsure) and as of last month he had another counsin diagnosed with MD! Is it EVER possible to have a male carrier or is this all just a crazy coincidence? Any thoughts?
