Effect of MYODM on Quality of Life, Fatigue and Hypersomnia in Patients With Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1

Official Title

Assessing the Effect of the MYODM Food Supplement on Quality of Life, Fatigue and Hypersomnia in Patients With Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1

Brief Summary

      The purpose of this study is to determine whether MYODM (formulated composition containing
      Theobroma cacao supplemented with caffeine (caffeine/theobromine ratio1/1.85, w/w) is
      effective in the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness due to myotonic dystrophy type 1
      (DM1) and improves the quality of life of these patients.

Detailed Description

      Detailed Description:

      Myotonic Dystrophy type I (DM1) is the most common form of adult muscular dystrophy,
      affecting 1 in 8000 individuals. It is an autosomal dominant disorder with multisystemic
      involvement of multiple organs and tissues, mainly brain, heart, endocrine system, eyes and
      both smooth and skeletal muscles.

      Hypersomnolence is one of the most frequently reported symptoms in patients with DM1 and
      often lead to handicap such as cessation of employment and withdrawal from social activities.
      The present project is a 6 month randomized study to assess the effect of MYODM on fatigue,
      hypersomnia and quality of life in DM1 patients.The patients will be randomized to one of the
      two study arms. The active arm will receive the MYODM treatment and the control arm will not
      but both will follow the same evaluation program.

      Patients will come to the center every 3 months for evaluations.
