Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) are Rare Conditions
Mumbai: A team headed by Dr Pradeep Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher & Founder of StemRx Bioscience Solutions – India gave a second lease of life to a 30-year-old woman patient diagnosed with severe muscle weakness owing to Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) are Rare Conditions. The patient is doing well and resumed her daily routine with ease.
Deepika Joshi from Mumbai and a housewife by profession sought medical help when she began experiencing severe muscular weakness, which progressively worsened over a period of five years. Specific weakness in her lower limbs and girdle muscles made even simple movements difficult for her. Determined to find a solution, she turned to Dr. Mahajan, a renowned specialist at StemRx.
Dr Pradeep Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher & Founder of StemRx Bioscience Solutions – India said, “Upon evaluation, it was revealed that Joshi’s creatine phosphokinase (CPK) levels were alarmingly high, exceeding 14,000 units. Girdle muscle weakness was particularly pronounced, and Joshi exhibited a negative straight leg raise (SLR) test and flaccid hip muscle tone. Despite these challenges, her sensations remained intact, and a positive Gower’s sign indicated the presence of muscle weakness.”
Under the expert care of Dr. Mahajan and the StemRx team, Joshi embarked on a comprehensive treatment plan tailored specifically to her needs. “The therapy targeted the weakened muscles, focusing on and around them to increase muscle mass and improve muscle fiber life. This targeted approach not only enhanced Joshi’s muscle power but also played a crucial role in slowing down the progression of her condition,” highlighted Dr. Mahajan.
Dr. Mahajan added, “As weeks passed, Joshi’s dedication and the effectiveness of the treatment became evident. Her girdle muscles significantly improved, enabling her to perform daily activities with greater ease. Simple tasks like getting up and sitting became less arduous, and her ability to walk improved dramatically. Ankle movements, previously hindered by weakness, were now much better. Most importantly, her tendency to fall was greatly reduced, providing her with newfound confidence and independence. In addition to the visible improvements, Joshi experienced a boost in muscle mass and a reduction in flaccidity. These positive changes not only improved her physical capabilities but also had a profound impact on her overall well-being and quality of life.”
“I thank Dr. Mahajan for his limitless efforts to help me get rid of muscle weakness and stand on my feet again. I can move freely now. It is because of Dr. Mahajan’s innovative treatment approach that I could defy the odds and reclaim control over my life,” said the patient, Deepika Joshi.
As more individuals with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) and similar conditions become aware of StemRx’s groundbreaking therapy, hope is reignited and a future free from the clutches of muscular weakness becomes a tangible possibility. Deepika Joshi’s remarkable recovery is an inspiration to all those facing similar challenges, proving that with the right treatment and unwavering determination, a brighter future awaits.
