Default Wife diagnosed w/als

My wife of 51 years was just diagnosed w/als last month. We are going for a 2nd opinion 2/11/2008 and we are in the MD Assn. system. We will have genetic counseling an hour b/4 the neurologist sees her. Are we heading in the right direction here with this disease?

Sorry your wife has been diagnosed with ALS.

Are you going to an ALS Clinic for 2nd opinion? You may want to get with the ALS Assoc. in your area, as they can provide information and have a loaner closet of items you may need in the future.

You may want to look at the Lithium study.
