Consultation and assessment

Whilst there is no cure, effective treatment of Myasthenia Gravis does relieve symptoms and remissions can be are achieved. Treatment is individual depending on the age of patient, duration and severity. The degree of functional disability is also considered in planning therapy. Medication like anticholinesterases (pyridostigmine) is the first choice in managing the condition. Other medications include low-dose oral steroids (Prednisolone) or immunosuppressant drugs (Azathioprine) may also be considered in patients who do not respond to first line medication. Sometimes, a thymectomy (surgical removal of the thymus gland) may prove to be beneficial, especially in those sufferers with a poorly functioning thymus gland. Most people are able to live a normal healthy life with proper treatment.
