Living With ALS© Adjusting to Swallowing Difficulties and Maintaining Good Nutrition

Support for this video has been provided by Goldberg and Solovy Foods - Martin Pine Memorial Nutrition Education Fund.

Most people take the acts of swallowing for granted. In this video we look at the impact of ALS on swallowing and one's ability to maintain good nutrition. Health care professionals provide guidelines and tips for diet changes and for decision-making regarding a feeding tube; patients and their families share their own experiences and demonstrate their ingenuity in adapting to the changes that weakened swallowing muscles and structures can cause. Information about a feeding tube is included along with patients' perspectives. The DVD is available free of charge to patients and their families and health care provider.
