Connect with the Experts: Endocrine Series – Bone Health

Endocrine issues can be common in Duchenne, especially if a person is on steroids. When steroids are taken every day over a long period, they change the way our body’s natural hormones are made and work, leading to issues such as adrenal suppression, delayed puberty, impaired growth, and osteoporosis.

On October 15, 2020 Dr. Leanne Ward (University of Ottawa) and Adam Wechsler (PPMD Adult Advisory Committee Member) joined us to discuss bone health in Duchenne.
