Our expert says:
Limb girdle muscular dystrophy is not usually transmitted from affected parents to their offspring, and the risks to your own children are probably small. If you wish, your family doctor could refer you to a Medical Genetic Department, where you could receive expert assessment and guidance. In this type of dystrophy, the sex of the affected parent does not influence the risks to their children.
