Do you have ALS? Would you like to help to maintain your weight?
Nutrition is important for ALS and people with ALS require more calories than people without ALS.
Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital have designed a mobile health nutrition app to calculate and track ALS calorie goals. Studies show that people with ALS do better when they maintain their weight, compared to those who lose weight.
This app will provide:
- Nutritional counseling based on your specific needs
- A way to monitor your weight
- If you wish to contribute to research, you can choose to share your dietary and disease data with researchers.
