Females are only supposed to be "carriers" of the ABCD1 gene defect, but symptoms of AMN still manifest themselves. My Mum is primarily restricted to a scooter. She can still transfer herself on and off seats/devices, and can walk a little, but not unaided. She also has tremors in her arms and hands. She was diagnosed with MS years ago before gene testing narrowed her ailment down to AMN, but I don't know if she's been officially re-diagnosed with AMN. It seems obvious that it would be right to, however.

Hello, I’m a 30 years old female and I was diagnosed AMN a few years ago. Though women don’t usually have symptoms or just middle ones I believe I suffer from more than just that. As I use to say I won the lottery of the few percentage of women with actual symptoms of the disease. If you have any questions or something I can help with, just say.
