RE: How does muscular dystrophy cause mental retardation in some cases?
Muscular dystrophy doesn't really "cause" mental retardation. It's sort of hard to explain, but it's linked to chromosomes.

Many "diseases" are linked to chromosomes. Sometimes the " right/wrong" chromosomes are affected and someone will develop more than one type of "disease/problem"

Down's syndrome/mental retardation, is caused when the 21st chromosome is tripled...they have 3 copies of chromosome 21 instead of 2...also called trisomy 21.

Some forms of muscular dystrophy are caused by genetics. Trisomy 21 is a "genetic" type of thing...so it's possible to have many problems/diseases if you have that extra chromosome 21. Hope this helped, rather than to make you more confused.

This condition comes under the genetic disorder which leads to the weakness and loss of muscle mass. As per medical experts, you can’t diagnose Muscular dystrophy - diseases of muscles. But treatment is possible, but need to consult with experts.
