Symptom Management

Dr. Merit Cudkowicz, Director of the ALS Clinic at Mass General Hospital.

Symptom management is a major component of the care of ALS. Identifying and addressing problematic symptoms can minimize their effects on a person’s function, health, and quality of life. There are many resources and technologies that can allow people with ALS to live their lives more fully. Below we have written some guidelines for caring for the symptoms associated with ALS. Please use these resources as a starting point for conversations with your clinician.
