Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1
How does someone with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis prevent malnutrition?
Working with a nutritionist is important for people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Speech therapists and nutritionists can help plan many small meals throughout the day that provide enough proper nourishment. It is important to avoid foods that are difficult to swallow. Suction devices can help remove excess fluids/saliva to prevent choking. Eventually a doctor may consider inserting a feeding tube into the stomach.
