  • Maximal oxygen consumption test [ Time Frame: up to Week 12 ]
    All participant are tested with a standardized maximal oxygen consumption test. Maximal oxygen uptake pr. minute pr. kg body (VO2max) weight and maximal work load (Wmax) is measured. The effect of intervention is found in different between groups in relative and absolute improvement in VO2max and Wmax.
  • 6MWT [ Time Frame: up to Week 12 ]
    6 min walk test. Outcome in meter.

Protein Supplementation and Exercise in Patients With FSH Muscular Dystrophy- a Randomized Placebo Controlled Study
The Effect of Protein Supplementation Doing Regular Exercise in Patients With Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy - a Blinded RCT Study

The hypotheses is that regular post exercise supplementation increase fitness and daily activity level in patients with Fascioscapulohumeral (FSH) muscular dystrophy.

All patients are tested before and after 12 weeks of cycle-ergometer exercise. Maximal oxygen consumption and 6MWT is used as primarily effect goals. Secondary effect goals are risk of falls and daily activity level.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the response to protein-carbohydrate supplementation doing regular exercise in patients with FSHD. All patients are tested before and after 12 weeks of cycle-ergometer exercise. Maximal oxygen consumption and a functional 6 min walk test(6MWT) is used as primarily effect goals. Secondary effect goals are risk of falls and daily activity level. We measure manuel muscle strength, a balance test, a 5-time-up-and-down-chair-test, a 14 steps-stair-test, accelerometer measuring, daily activity level questionnaire and SP36.

We use a blinded randomized controlled trail. The interventions are 12 weeks regular exercise and consumption of a post-exercise drink. The exercise consists of 30 session of 30 minutes moderate exercise on a cycle-ergometer. After each exercise session patients consume a protein or a non-caloric placebo drink.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Facioscapulohumeral Muscle Dystrophy
  • Behavioral: Regular exercise
    Duration: 3 session each week, in 12 week. Intensity: 70 % of VO2max. Type: cycle-ergometer exercise.
  • Dietary Supplement: Protein-carbohydrate supplementation
    Dosage: 45g powder mixed in 0.5 L water After each exercise session, 3 times each week, in 12 weeks.
  • Active Comparator: Protein supplementation
    Patients consume a drink after each exercise session. The drink consist of whey protein, maltodextrin, and flavors mixed in water.
    Interventions:
    • Behavioral: Regular exercise
    • Dietary Supplement: Protein-carbohydrate supplementation
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo supplement
    Patients consume a drink after each exercise session. The drink consist of flavors mixed in water.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Regular exercise
  • No Intervention: Control
    Patients will be tested before and after a none-intervention period of 12 weeks.
