My sone was diagnosed with DMD last year, his doctors at CHOP want him to start steroids, his father and I face been pushing off starting them because we don't see the benefit of them , there just way to many side effects, we round rather he be happy now and not have to worry about other problems arriving from the side effects.
Has anyone else forgone steroids? If so are their any kind of vitamins or supplements we could give him the would help at all? I read somewhere that vitamin E could possible help keep his muscles stronger and give him more stamina.
We're just really concerned about starting steriods.
