What is MND?
This disease is so rare that in the UK it only affects just about 5,000 in the whole islands. The people who are aged 60 and beyond are usually the age range that get mostly affected but in some cases it affects a younger crowd too.
However, scientifically addressing. Motor Neurones are nerve cells that shuttle information from the brain or spinal cord to the muscles that produce kinetic energy. The damage of these cells gets damaged, the information at stake cannot be transported through and that results to muscle wasting, gradual loss and weakness.
Common Symptoms of MND
MND is progressively life threatening and unlike most illnesses is that its diagnosis can raise uneasiness about whether sustainability in a care home is not capable of being avoided.
Day-to-day under-takings will be severe difficult to carry out. For example:
Breathing, swallowing so that tube feeding is inevitable. Foot drop due to weak ankles, Walking sometimes, the other leg will drag. Gripping objects, lifting or picking them up or that alone carry them around. Slurred Speech (Dysarthria). There’s also almost 20% of MND cases that involve dementia, the fronto-temporal dementia.
