JULY’S TOPIC: The Onset Age and Duration of Symptoms!

MG affects both men and women and occurs across all racial and ethnic groups.  It most commonly impacts young adult women (under 40) and older men (over 60), but it can occur at any age, including childhood.  Myasthenia gravis is not inherited nor is it contagious.  Occasionally, the disease may occur in more than one member of the same family.
