Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive condition that damages the nervous system, leaving muscles wasted and weak, and causing loss of mobility, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing. MND tends to affect people over 40 and is most common between the ages of 50 and 70. There are about 5,000 people with MND at any one time in the UK. The cause remains a mystery and there is no cure. The third edition of this book gives a full update of treatments and resources available to help those diagnosed live life to the full. Topics include what the disease is, what the doctors will do, and how to cope with the difficulties. This new edition also examines possible dietary factors in causing the disease, the latest on benefits, and up to date thinking on drug trials. Dr David Oliver, a leading expert on MND, shows how to treat not just the physical effects but also the emotional ones for the whole family. Dr Oliver also explains the vital role of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
