      Thanks John,

      Nutrition is indeed of the utmost importance for pALS.

      There are several calorie calculators for pALS, including on my website padiracinnovation.org
      They are based on the work of Dr. Edward Kasarkis, Medical Director at the University of Kentucky.

      Something I ran into on the Gut Biodome  in the Neural Regen Journal:

      Published in June 2021

      The gut microbiome: implications for neurogenesis and
      neurological diseases


      This is fairly dry reading but it is a good outline of the current status of research on this issue.

        Thanks for the link you gave, but it is a temporary file.
        It can be downloaded again here

      I think that a very important step has been achieved in understanding the mechanism of how misfolded TDP-43 aggregates in cells.

      This is important as misfolded TDP-43 aggregates has been identified since 2006 by Virginia Lee has one of the most common pathological feature in all forms of ALS (> 97%), half of FLD dementia as well as a quarter of Alzheimer cases and a significant number Parkinson cases. Indeed TDP-43 proteopathy mirrors other well known proteopathies that are found in Alzheimer or Parkinson diseases.

      Scientists in India found that acidification, a process which happens in aging and which results from metabolism (hence my post in this thread), results in TDP-43 misfolding.

      I blogged about it today on my web site padiracinnovation.org.

      Indeed it’s only my own opinion that it’s important, but it’s well known that I am not someone who react very enthusiastically to most publications about neurodegenerative diseases.
