Item description for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (American Academy of Neurology) by M.D. Robert G. Miller, Deborah F. Gelinas & Patricia O'Connor...

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is not a curable disease, but it is a treatable one. Treatments are now available that can make a major difference in prolonging life and enhancing the quality of life for people with the disease, and there are treatments for many of the symptoms of ALS that can help ease its burden. Multidisciplinary teams in specialized ALS centers are providing top quality care and comprehensive rehabilitation for ALS sufferers. In spite of the progressive nature of this disease and its clear tendency to shorten life, the momentum of research is expanding dramatically and numerous clinical trials are testing promising new therapies. Our understanding of the basic causes of ALS is expanding gradually. The substantial resources of patient advocacy groups such as the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association and Muscular Dystrophy Association provide tremendous help and support for people with ALS and their families. Although the diagnosis of ALS can initially be devastating, the vast majority of people discover new courage from within to battle this disease and live life with vigor and enthusiasm. The information in this book will prove useful both in managing the disease and living within its limitations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (American Academy of Neurology)?

I have ALS and was surprised this helped....  Jul 24, 2006
Cover to cover this book enlightened me to what I've expereinced, feared and now need to predict. Having lost my aunt and godmother to this disease made me feel guilty and aprehensive. I taught religion for 5 years to 8th graders in addition to my full time job. In the last year I had to tell them the truth about me, I now have ALS, the first group outside my family and very close friends. I did not think reading this book would encourage me to hope but it did. Although most of my family also are reading it too, it almost seems harder for them then me, but in the end its good advice and at least opens the door for good and educated communication when decisions will be needed.
