Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is difficult to diagnose early because it can mimic other neurological diseases.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is difficult to diagnose early because it can mimic other neurological diseases. Tests to rule out other conditions might include: Electromyogram (EMG). Your doctor inserts a needle electrode through your skin into various muscles. Treatments can't reverse the damage of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, but they can slow the progression of symptoms, prevent complications, and make you more comfortable and independent. You might need an integrated team of doctors trained in many areas and other health care professionals to provide your care. This might prolong your survival and improve your quality of life.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the most common neurodegenerative disease of the motor system. Bulbar symptoms such as dysphagia and dysarthria are frequent features of ALS and can result in reductions in life expectancy and quality of life. These dysfunctions are assessed by clinical examination and by use of instrumented methods such as fiberendoscopic evaluation of swallowing and videofluoroscopy.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – Diagnostics. All above-mentioned symptoms are caused by the death of motor neurons. Diagnosis and conservative treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (als). But they may die not only because of ALS. There is a group of illnesses that manifest with similar symptoms. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis can be met rarely – just 1-2 cases per 100,000 a year. That is why, ALS is a diagnosis of exclusion. Diagnostics is based on the clinical examination and methods. Bundeswehr Academic Hospital Berlin.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neurone disease (MND) or Lou Gehrig's disease, is a specific disease that causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles. Some also use the term motor neuron disease for a group of conditions of which ALS is the most common.
About 5–10% of cases of ALS are directly inherited from a person's parents. Overall, first-degree relatives of an individual with ALS have a 1% risk of developing ALS. ALS has an oligogenic mode of inheritance, meaning that mutations in two or more genes are required to cause disease.
