    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Its very interesting. It is a neurodegenerative disease. If you have to write about a possible cure I would consider writing about potassium injections. Good Luck on your paper.

    I’d recommend Fragile X, it’s a genetic condition that affects not only the children who have what is called a full-mutation but it can also affect carriers (those with a pre-mutation).

    For children it’s often misdiagnosed as autism, or because the symptoms are so mild not diagnosed at all. For carriers who have FXTAS it’s often misdiagnosed as Parkinsons and/or Alzheimers.

    See sources below for more information.
