Bone health in Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy: A cross-sectional study

Principal Investigator:

This is a cross-sectional single visit study to determine bone health in individuals with FSHD. The measures of bone health, including bone mineral density and lean body mass via DEXA scan and blood tests for biomarkers of bone resorption and formation, will be combined with conventional performance measures of muscle strength testing and timed function tests to determine fracture risk in FSHD individuals and its correlation with age, gender, muscle strength and FSHD allele size.
