The MDF is committed to raising awareness about DM and the community with members of Congress and important federal agencies like the FDA. This year our goal is to expand our engagement with key stakeholders in Congress, federal and state agencies, medical professionals and the media and we need your help!
Myotonic dystrophy (DM) is a multisystemic disorder that can affect all age groups. Because of the range of systems affected, management requires a more expansive approach than most disorders and care is best provided by a coordinated, multidisciplinary team.
Information on the symptoms, diagnosis and management of each system affected by myotonic dystrophy is available via the links above.
