Different types of muscular dystrophy may have different effects on a person's quality of life, with some being more severe than others. However, for the most part, the progressive muscle weakness caused by muscular dystrophy can have a significant impact on a person's ability to do daily activities. Mobility may be very limited, and a person may have to rely on assistive devices like walkers or wheelchairs in order to get around. Muscle weakness in internal organs may lead to other complications that can affect daily life, as well. With proper treatment and therapy, a person with muscular dystrophy can still live a full life. However, it's important to acknowledge that the effects of the disease can have a negative impact on quality of life, so support should be provided in every way possible.
