    2. c9 - most important gene was not observed. it is complicated more than the others. 3. i think that all forms of als have gene mutations. most of them ("sporadic") are not inherited (guam als, poisoning etc). they are EPIgenetics.

    Diabetics and ALS

    we are in a same boat. in may i found my postprandial glucose and insulin are high. normal glucose is ok, so i didnt pay attention to postprandial values never. dmt2 and als often go together and i think that they are under same umbrella if, at least, they had not same root in a certain variants...

    Is it total disaster?

    @nikki youre right. as soon as i will be able to visit internist, i'll scan myself and do a blood test (again). i did it last time - last year. everything was perfect. oh, i forgot... spo2 is 95-98%, heart rate is from 85mostly-160(!), i did it in a few devices, hba1c is 5.6 (ono month...
