Perhaps Dr. D'Adamo can address this mroe specifically (or generally).
I wish I knew more, as a colleague of mine developed ALS and I knew nothing to help.
A search of PubMed data base showed some research that may be of some use.
Here's a brief summary:
1. Because of the oxidative stress of the disease, antioxidants seem to help
delay onset of severe symptoms. One study used vitamin E, but you might look
at others which are available like quercetin and garlic.
2. Several cases in the South pacific are associated with low calcium and magnesium,
and relatively high levels fo aluminum and manganese, associated with the water
3. Casein (from dairy) caused glucose intolerance in ALS patients, so it looks
like dairy products are risky. Soy elevated glucagon levels but not to the extent
4. A clustered group of ALS patients in Wisconsin shared a family history of cancer and ate a
lot of lake fish. (Sorry I don't have more on that at this point.)
5. ALS patients' weight loss has been thought to be from high energy demands rather than high
protein demands, so calorie intake is monitored for adequacy.
With warm regard,
