Raising Awareness

For professionals and Family members

The most important thing we can do is raise awareness of the condition. We are currently working with an impressive team of UK clinicians and researchers to produce a UK Clinical guideline. This is important, because being given a diagnosis and being told to 'google it' is not the best way for anyone to come to terms with this life changing event - and for many of us, it is a life changer - a bolt out of the blue.


We are working to produce a UK booklet for those living with DM, including the families and carers, to help them through what is often a very uncertain time.

Your input would be very helpful here, if you have any comments on what did or didn't help you upon diagnosis, we would love to hear your experiences. This would be a great help in spreading awareness to the Medical professionals involved, who might not be aware what we need to help us at this time. You can send any comments to: curedm@outlook.com
