At onset, the signs and symptoms of ALS are often very subtle. They can be vague
and nonspecific. This means that they could be caused by many different
conditions, not necessarily a motor neuron disease.
ALS is a slowly progressive disease causing gradual disability. Once you begin
to lose muscle function, you also begin to lose the ability to care for
Once ALS is diagnosed, you will require regular visits with the medical team
that is providing your care. These visits will monitor the course of the disease
and the effects of treatment. They will also alert the medical team to needs for
changes or additions to the treatment regimen.
There is no known way to prevent ALS. This is one of the goals of ongoing
research on ALS.
