Muscular Dystrophy is somewhat like this.

There are as well, rather exotic muscular diseases like hypp that involve the inability to utilize some proteins.

(This disease was common years ago in a horse hugely beautiful, called Impressive. I saw him once, and he was the ideal quarterhorse in the flesh.


But he passed on this problem to his foals. You can google Impressive + HYPP to find out more).

There are tons of these types of diseases around, some not lethal, but inconvenient. And some subclinical...i.e., the carrier barely knows there is anything wrong with his ability to process foods. Or as well, a defect in the division of cells responsible for normal function.

Muscular Dystrophy in the end usually paralyzes the diaphragm (the muscle for some unknown reason all over the body turns to fat)--- the structure that allows one to inflate and deflate one's lungs.

Hope this helps??  (+ info)

I have read your question very carefully and I felt the frustration of not being able to ask you a few probing questions before answering. However, I would at the very least like to email you a few things to consider that will at least offer a few things to consider and may offer additional aspect for your consideration...with your permission first!

----------

Ask your physician for names of doctors he or she is associated with and then set up interviews with them. Be sure you have questions or concerns about their experience and the way they conduct business and their associations with hospitals in their area. It is difficult at best. Trust your intuition but be informed about your condition. There is plenty of info on the internet.  (+ info)
