Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 Aerobic Exercise

common.study.values.description

Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 Aerobic Exercise Study

Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a genetic disease that primarily targets skeletal muscle resulting in severe weakness and muscle loss. As a result, individuals suffering from DM1 become very inactive and lose mobility resulting in a lower quality of life. This study will investigate the effect of a 12-week moderate intensity exercise protocol on skeletal muscle function and cellular benefits in DM1 patients.
