Is there a cure or treatment for ALS?

Every weekday, a CNNHealth expert doctor answers a viewer question. On Wednesdays, it's Dr. Otis Brawley, Chief Medical Officer of the American Cancer Society.

Question asked by Sandee Hengst of Las Vegas, Nevada
: Is there a cure or treatment for ALS?

Expert answer: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder that causes muscle weakness. It is incurable and eventually fatal. It occurs at a very low incidence, about one to three cases per 100,000 people. While it is seen among young adults, it is most common among people in their 60s and 70s. Ten percent of cases that occur are familial or inherited. The cause is unknown in 90 percent.

The disease is primarily a deterioration of the upper motor neurons of the brain and the lower motor neurons of the spine. Motor neurons are the nerves that give out the signals for muscles to contract and move. ALS most commonly presents with weakness of an arm or leg. The examiner may find other symptoms such as exaggerated deep tendon reflexes (hyper-reflexia), and spasms. There is also eventual loss of muscle mass (atrophy) and small muscle twitching (fasciculations).

When a patient's initial symptoms are hand weakness, they may notice that they are dropping things and have difficulty performing fine motor tasks such as pinching, writing, typing, managing buttons or zippers and picking up small objects such as coins and paper clips. Patients with shoulder weakness may have trouble using their arms above the head in activities such as combing their hair or lifting things.

Patients with lower extremity weakness most often notice a foot drop. They have a "slapping" gait and are prone to trip. Some with weakness in the thigh and hip will have difficulty climbing stairs and rising from chairs.

About one in five are initially diagnosed because they have difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) or slurred speech (dysarthria). These symptoms are due to weakness of muscles in throat and mouth.

As the disease progresses, weakness spreads to other parts of the body. Difficulty breathing can lead to the need for mechanical ventilation. Infection, especially pneumonia, is a common problem with end stage ALS. The median survival from the time of diagnosis is three to five years. About 10 percent of ALS patients can live 10 years or more. Survival beyond 20 years is rare.

A number of drugs have been tested for this disease and several are in clinical trials. Neurology departments at medical schools are the best place to find these trials. Riluzole is the only drug that has impact on survival. It does slow ALS progression but only marginally. Those who are most likely to benefit from riluzole have had symptoms for less than five years and have very little respiratory impairment.

There are a number of diseases that can be mistaken for ALS. Among them are cervical disk disease (cervical radiculomyelopathy) post-polio syndrome, inflammatory myopathy, myasthenia gravis and hyperthyroidism. Physicians considering the diagnosis of ALS work hard to exclude those diseases that have very effective treatments.

    ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS FOR GETTING MY WIFE OUT OF FIBROID WITH HIS HERB One of the greatest moments in this world is when you see your own wife put to bed, this awesome moments makes you a man and not just a man a real man. My wife suffered from Fibroid which made her unable to get pregnant and give us a child for almost 18 years with multiple surgeries done and none seemed to help the situation. I almost gave up but due to the love i had for her because i married her a virgin i had to find a way to help her. I told a member of my church who recommended Dr. williams to me, i contacted him and he sent me a medicine and this medicine shrinked it naturally in a weeks it was like magic but it's science. I am happy writing this because he delivered a baby girl. Do not loose hope too soon contact him on drwilliams098765@gmail.com and i am confident she will help you too.

    I got married to my lovely husband for the past 7 years without conceiving and fibroid was the issue, i took different prescribed medication but could not cure it but my husband was so confident in me and kept encouraging me that one day someone would call me mother, we did not rest searching for solution from different Doctors all they could say was surgery and i was afraid of that then a friend in my office introduced me to Dr. Davismartin who sent his product to me which i took and it really worked perfectly, and my Dr. confirm me pregnant after 2 months of taken his product. i gave birth to a BABY GIRL February this year and i will named her TESTIMONY. contact him also at drdavismartin62@gmail.com.

    My husband was misdiagnosed with PD in 2000. Very rapid deterioration and many queries eventually led to MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) diagnosis. A horrible, horrible condition robbing people of independence, dignity, movement, speech, continence, ability to swallow and breathe.we didn't know what to do we tried everything possible medically, we were waiting for his death then one day our daughter got back from work with the email of a herbal Clinic saying her friend from work told her about a testimony on how Health Herbal Clinic cured her mom from PD and it truely worked, we were desperate and sceptical but my daughter told me we got nothing to loose and i decided to give it a try. 4 weeks after he started taking the herb he regained his speech and today my husband is fully rocovered from this deadly disease called PD, this isn't a BS it is real you can also contact health herbal clinic on healthherbalclinic@gmailCOM

    AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS)
    I was diagnosed of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) in summer of 2012, my symptoms started out with a "foot drop" on my left foot, from there my left leg lost all muscle tone followed by slurred speech and inability to eat without getting choked, strangled, and coughing. My neurologist prescribed me some medications to help my symptoms but the medications did no good and their side effects were too severe. In 2015 i started on NewLife Herbal Clinic ALS Herbal formula treatment, i read alot of positive reviews on their success rate with the ALS Herbal treatment and i immediately started on the treatment. Just 11 weeks into the ALS Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with my coordination, speech, breathing and muscle movements. I have basically gone stronger than i'd thought i could ever be again, visit NewLife Herbal Clinic official website www. newlifeherbalclinic. com or email info@ newlifeherbalclinic. com. The fatigue and general muscle weakness had also declined, this treatment is nothing less of a miracle!

    My Mom was diagnosed with ALS (Amyltrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as MND (Motor-neuron Disease) or Lou Gehrig's disease in November of 2012.  I was told that she had a year to live, no more than two at best.  I believed the doctors for only a short time, then decided that dying of ALS was not acceptable. My Brother, Williams and I, embarked on a journey to heal.  We were introduced to an African herbalist whose herbs caused a turn around in my life. I've been on these African herbal drugs and i'm doing greatly. no more saliva and now i can use my arms and feet. all thanks to Dr.udokaspell@gmailcom the great African Herbalist.....   If I can do it, others can too.

    Hello to y'all, My name is Lana Rhoades Ashley am currently 38years of age. I greet you all in the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit Amen. I want to testify what God has done for me and how He used Dr Wise one to answer my prayer. You know when u pray and ask God for something, He doesn’t come down from heaven to answer, but he uses people to meet to that your needs, and that is how God used Wise One to meet to my own need. I got married Years ago and at the age of 33years. My plan was to start giving birth immediately and God’s willing finish before 30years. I conceived after 2months of marriage but lost the pregnancy at 6weeks, and ever since then, I couldn’t conceive. I went to the hospital and my gyno said I would have to go through medical examinations. I went through some examinations like pelvic scan, hormonal profile, Hsg and follicular counting. After all the examinations my gyno said my womb is ok, hormones balanced, my tubes patent (open) and I ovulate well. He gave me folic acid and said I should go and keep trying. My hubby went for sperm counting and was ok. I was very devastated because I don’t know what my problem was. I mèet a friend that told me about a traditional herb doctor called Wise One but I was reluctant about it, but one day I decided to give a call and explained to him and the Fertility Consultant and after discussing with them, Dr wise one prepared a herb 🌿 medicine for me to and after one month of taking the supplement I conceived and gave birth to my first son. After I conceived my baby I couldn’t hold my joy, I called my friend abroad who have been trying to conceive but to no avail. She has been married for 6years, tried IVF twice and they both failed. I told her about Wise One. She called the fertility consultant and paid for her supplements and that of her hubby and it was sent to them. The miracle here is that after two months of taking her supplements religiously, my friend who has been trying to conceive for the past 6years and has had two failed IVF procedures, at some point she even lost hope and was planning for a surrogate, conceived and gave birth also. Wise one is indeed a life saver but you might not understand if you’ve not looked for the fruit of the womb. The most annoying thing is seeing people that got married after you got married dedicating their children. Oh! boy that feeling is very sad and heartbreaking. It’s not that you’re not happy for the couple but you wished you have a child to call your own. I thank God today that the feeling is now a thing of the past, I now know what it feels to be a mother and also experience the joy of motherhood. I wouldn’t have experienced all these if not for God and Dr Wise one God bless you sir for putting smiles on the faces of so many women like me. Are you also ready to give a trial? Call or whatsapp him on 23 49083 4000 84

    I caught genital herpes from my Ex Husband who never told me about the virus. I had it for 5 years with so many outbreak,and it affected my life.. People think herpes is really a minor skin irritation herpes has a long term effects on health. The stigma attached to this virus by ignorant people is ridiculous. Most people have herpes in one form or another,i was first taking Antiviral medicines, such as acyclovir(Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), and valacyclovir (Valtrex), are recommended for treating primary genital herpes outbreaks. This medicine can be taken when an outbreak occurs. It can also be taken every day to help prevent outbreaks,it is not a total cure... I will like to tell everyone who is reading this my testimony on how i get rid of my genital herpes.I was reading a comment on the internet,and i saw a testimony posted by a young lady from USA that she got rid of her herpes with the help of doctor ERAUDU ,a Traditional Herbalist.So i was so happy when i saw that post,that his herbal medication Cure the virus totally.I quickly copied the herbal doctor email address and i email him within 30 minutes he respond to my mail.I explain things to him he told me not to worry that i should fill his herbal form which i did..The next day he told me that he has prepare the herbal medicine,that i should send him my address that he want to sent his HERBAL MEDICINE to me via DHL or FED-EX that was how i got the herbal medication and i use it as i was instructed.After a week i went to see a Medical Doctor who confirmed my herpes was no more.When some of my friend who has herpes saw me they were surprise and i also introduce them to the man and they are also cure from the same Genital herpes today.I also refer my cousin to the same herbalist who was having DIABETES and today she is fully cure...If you have Genital or Oral herpes or any kind of Diseases and infections,kindly contact HERBALIST ERAUDU via this email DR, erauduherbalcure94@yahoo.com OR

    I was diagnosed with ALS (Amyltrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as MND (Motor-neuron Disease) or Lou Gehrig’s disease in November of 2012. I was told I had a year to live, no more than two at best. I believed the doctors for only a short time, then decided that dying of ALS was not acceptable. My husband, Jackson and I, embarked on a journey to heal. We were introduced to an herbalist whose herbs caused a turn around in my life. I’ve been on these African herbal drugs and i’m doing greatly. no more saliva and now i can use my arms and feet. all thanks to Dr Ogbeifun the great Herbalist. If I can do it, others can too.so if you are out there with this same virus i will advice you to contact him now via Email: ogbefunhearlingtemple@gmail.com website https://ogbefunhearlingtem.wixsite.com/spell or add him on whatsapp +2348102574680
