Hi, I am a new member to this site and am jumping around a bit from MS, Fibromyalgia, Lupus to here as I have no clear Dx yet.
I have recently been diagnosed with an allergy to wheat and gluten and came across research stating that a Gluten-free diet may slow down the progression of ALS.
I don't have the energy to get into specifics right now - but thought I'd share this information. It is fairly new info. and a lot of physicians probably don't know much about it.
Most think that gluten is only related to celiac disease - but for every 1 person iwho presents with intestinal problems from gluten - there are 7 whom only present with neurological - ataxia - weakness - fatigue etc.
Please check this out if you think it can help you.
