Hi all Im 39 years young and have just been told that I have ALS. After the feelings of devistation wore off Ive decided to make the best out of the worst situation I have ever faced. I thought it would do me good to read all I could about this disease and ask a lot of questions. Im interested if anyone can help me with diet issues. I take it Im a lucky one right now as the ALS pretty much in my limbs and I dont have any swallowing issues. Ive read alot about the excitotoxins like glutamate and aspartate. I was wondering if anyone has found that a diet trying to avoid free glutamate has helped relieve some of the ALS symtoms. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.
