Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) Infographic!

It’s really hard to describe what CMT is to people. After about 2 minutes of trying to explain peripheral nerves, neuromuscular disease, genetic patterns and why your talking about a Tooth, eyes glaze over, yawns escape and the subject changes to other topics like….the weather.

Maybe a picture explains the effects of having CMT better than big, long scientific words. I think in pictures, so I thought I’d give it a try. Despite my inability to create stunning graphic images, I’m showing you what I came up with. If you find this graphic to be useful, please feel free to share!! No authorization needed!

    This is perfect.   Could it be a full page in CMTA Report which we could cut out, copy and give to people?  Or could it be a cover of CMTA Report?  It is so practical and not overly technical.   It would also make a great big poster at Walks and other events.   I’d like to leave a few at the doctor’s office so his staff understand.  The website link at the bottom is essential too.  Or if I can figure out how to put it on my Smartphone then when people say something like “you’re limping”, which is happening more and more often, I could say “let me Message you something that will explain it”.    THANKS, Elizabeth.

    I like this but I wish it included leg weakness, arm weakness, mobility issues and the rare types of CMT that can produce blindness and deafness.
