example: Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT)

This means that the disease runs in families and causes problems with the sensory and motor nerves, the nerves that run from the arms and legs to the spinal cord and brain. Its caused by inherited mutations in genes involved with the structure and function of the nerves that serve your feet, legs, hands and arms.A small percentage of people experience severe weakness or other problems which, in rare cases, can be life-threatening. In most affected individuals, however, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease does not affect life expectancy. After diagnosis by a neurologist, CMT patients are usually directed to either a podiatrist for care of their foot problems, an orthotist for the manufacture and fitting of braces, an orthopedic surgeon for surgeries to straighten toes, lengthen heel cords or lower arches, or a physical therapist or occupational therapist to design exercise programs to strengthen muscles or learn energy conservation. CMT affects an estimated 1 in 2,500 people in the United States and 2.6 million people worldwide, although experts believe the number could be much higher.
