Understanding Lou Gehrig’s Disease


A lot of us have heard of Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also know as ALS, but we may not know what type of disease it exactly is.  Affecting nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, this disease affect the motor skills of the individual, and eventually leads to their death.  They may experience muscle weakness, twitching, arms and legs impairment, difficulty projecting voice, and even difficulty breathing and swallowing in more advanced stages.  While there is yet to be the discovery of a cure, there are FDA approved drugs that has show the ability to slow down the progress of the disease, and different clinical trails are also showing good results.
