Hi, we managed to reduce our sons levels by giving him COQ10 400mg per day with almond butter to help with its absorption.  We also give 5000iu of Vitamin D drops in with this.  An anti inflammatory diet is best with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, and more alkaline diet the better.  We also give Magnesium, Zinc, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Colloidal Silver (due to no immunity with being on steroid Deflazacort), and probiotics. Want to start vege juicing but need to start slowly as he already has lots of supplements in drinks as cannot swallow pills etc.

Dear Nimi,
thanks for your piece of advice,but here in india doctors dont prescribe these drugs like lisinopril or losartan or spirinolactone without having heart problem for dmd and chemists do not give without prescription.

If u know any families in US and Canada who are using these drugs on young kids of 4 -5 yrs old could pls share their contact details so i can show to doctors here and convince them to use on my son.

Will appreciate your comments on this.

Hi Ambirsh:


From my research it is better go give losartan and ace invibitors before problem in th heart shows.

I will start giving at the age of 6

In the states and Canada people give losartan/ace inhibitor much earlier (I know of a few that start at age of four.

Good luck

Hi Nimi,
from your reply to manoj ,it seems u are using losartan for 5 yr old Hadas.pls clarify.
Doctors in india will prescribe losartan only if dmd patient has heart dys function which normaly occurs by the age of 10 and up.
So im just curious to know is losartan and other heart drugs like lisinopril and spironolactone are ok to use even before heart problem arises.

Hi Manoj Nag,

I am not an expert nor a doctor. Being around though I see what works for others:

 First level steroids (with vitamin D and Calcium)

Second Level: idebenone, Losartan/(other blood pressure drugs)

Third level: protandim, multi vitamin Green tea

Fourth level: Vitamin E, antioxidant food, omega 3


I hope this helps. Let me know if you need any clarifications.

Again I'm just a father from the community

Can you suggest me diet to lower the CPK level and improve the muscles strength
Comment by Nimi Langer on September 19, 2011 at 2:28pm

thanks for sharing this info. I wish a more orgenized study on diet and its effect would be done.

We parents could decide to do it. I thought of doing no milk and red meet diet and measure the CPK but for all these experiements we need to be a group of parents. Hopefully one day.
