Sponsored Content by Alexion Pharmaceuticals

MG is a rare, autoimmune neuromuscular condition that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles. MG can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, leaving patients fatigued from everyday activities or unable to perform certain daily tasks like brushing their hair or chewing and swallowing. In some cases, symptoms can be life threatening.

Because symptoms of MG can mimic other neurological disorders, patients may be initially misdiagnosed or experience delays in diagnosis or treatment. Although there is no known cure for MG, it is important for patients to speak with their doctors regularly about their disease and for those who have unresolved symptoms or show no improvement on treatment, to be their own advocates to better manage their disease.
