    I’m not sure if this is the right place for this. I’m sorry if this is a long post. Thank you for anyone who takes the time to read and reply.

    I was hoping someone would have an answer to a question.
    I have 2 biological sisters and 1 brother. One older sister has 4 children (2 boy, 2 girls), while the other has 2 boys. My older sister’s sons both have DMD, and one of her girl is a carrier. My other sister’s 2 boys do not have DMD. I do not have any children, but plan on getting tested in the near future. My sister is a carrier and missing (exons 51-55). My question is if my mother was a carrier, would we be missing the same exons if I were to be a carrier as well?

    Hello and welcome sisterecho. This is indeed a complex situation and one that can only be answered by speaking to a geneticist and having blood tests done. Thus your suggestions that you going to see someone soon about the matter hopefully means genetic clinic of some form. Clearly I am sure you are hoping that the missing exons would not be missing in your case and you can carry on life quite happily. Professional advice is clearly the best avenue here.


    So many love songs, so little love.
