Motor Neurone Disease
04 Apr 2019
Motor Neurone Disease or MND is a progressive disorder which affects nerve cells that subsequently leads to weakness in nerves and muscles. This condition leads to paralysis. MND is also called as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The causes to MND have not been detected yet, it may be an inherited disease. But it is not a communicable disease. Symptoms of MND includes weakness while movement and grip, shivering and muscle twitching. As a result of this disease, movement, breathing and swallowing are inhibited. Due to absence of cause, proper medication for MND treatment has not been developed. Patients die within 2-3 years but some might live a long life.
