While there is no cure for muscular dystrophy, researchers are continuing to improve treatment.
As of right now, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy. However, a lot of research continues to be done and through medicine and therapy, the quality of life in patients with muscular dystrophy has increased greatly.
Studies show that by the end of 2007, 85% of males studied with one type of muscular dystrophy were born between 1988 (19 at the time) and 1992 (15 at the time) were still living. Out of the people in the same study who were ages 20-24 at the time, 58% of them were still alive.
