Re: dystrophic dysplasia

  • First of all, congrats on your new baby!

    And welcome. 

    DD is two and also has a rare form of dwarfism. Only 140 people in the world have had it and there's not much info. available at all. Since DD also has other major medical concerns, its not where we put most of our focus and sometimes I totally forget that she has it. Though in reality, I think a lot of the other concerns actually stim from er type of dwarfism. 

    We have been to a very well respected geneticist who specializes in dwarfism and are now working with a whole team who knows a lot about the more general group of Primordial Dwarfisms. They've been amazing to her and us.

    I've heard good things about the Magic Foundation, but am not a member. You may want to look there, though.

    There are also a few other Mom's of children with dwarfism on here.

    Do you have any specific questions?
