[IP] Re: Types of Diabetes - MD - LONG



> There are distinct names for other diseases which are similar to one

Muscular Dystrophy is an umbrella for many similar diseases. When  Jerry
Lewis does his annual Labor Day telethon all the following diseases are
included. BTW, they have not found a cure yet and he has raised probably
more funds for this cause than any other fundraiser has for any other
disease/malady. I did a search and came up with:

MUSCULAR DYSTROPHIES:
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) (Also known as Pseudohypertrophic)
Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD)
Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy (EDMD)
Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD)
Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSH or FSHD) (Also known as
Landouzy-Dejerine)
Myotonic Dystrophy (MMD) (Also known as Steinert's Disease)
Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy (OPMD)
Distal Muscular Dystrophy (DD) (Miyoshi)
Congenital Muscular Dystrophy (CMD)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
MOTOR NEURON DISEASES:
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (Also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease)

as SMA Type 1, Werdnig-Hoffman)
Intermediate Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA or SMA2) (Also known as SMA Type
2)
Juvenile Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA, SMA3 or KW) (Also known as SMA Type
3, Kugelberg-Welander)
Spinal Bulbar Muscular Atrophy (SBMA) (Also known as Kennedy's Disease and
X-Linked SBMA)
Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA - Adult)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
INFLAMMATORY MYOPATHIES:
Dermatomyositis (DM)
Polymyositis (PM)
Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hypertrophic Interstitial
Neuropathy)
