As far as early detection goes, Manitoba, Canada tests every single boy born for DMD. This is how we knew Joshua had it. It isn't in either mine or my husband's side of the family. It's as easy as a CK test or a "prick in the heel" right after they are born. It seems so easy, but if you think about it, all babies are checked out anyway. It's a lot cheaper to do it when they are born and running tests anyway, than to wait until they show symptoms and are being checked for a multitude of things. It also saves money in the long run because you can start taking precautionary measures before symptoms arise and may be too late to do.
