I'm a manifesting carrier of DMD. I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Congestive heart failure,Ventricular tachycardia and I have an implanted cardioverter defribulator.
About my family:
The Geneticist thing the DMD mutation started with Great-grandma,and may go back many go father. My grandma passed it on to her two daughters. My grandma then passed it on to my mom and she passed it on to my sister and I. It is unknown if my mom's two sisters are carriers. The geneticist is basing this on the fact,that my Great-Grandma, my grandma and her sister all died from cardiac arrest.
My sister's son is the only male with DMD.
