Hi May,

To qualify for DLA, the name of the illness/disease is secondary, what is paramount is the care and/or mobility needs arising from it.

The two links below are guides for DLA Decision Makers and DLA Tribunals on the likely care and mobility needs arising from Myasthenia Gravis.

Neurological Disorders Paragraph 15.9

Myasthenia Gravis

Both links gives the likely care and mobility needs, depending upon the severity of the disease.

Hope this helps.

Jim
