Rhabdomyolysis Self-Care at Home

If rhabdomyolysis is suspected, early medical evaluation is required. It is important for the patient, their family, or caregivers, to recognize the potential that the disease exists, and seek urgent medical care.

If the case is mild, home treatment may include rest and adequate hydration, along with rehydrating by plenty of drinking fluids.
