Let’s talk about finding a final expense life insurance policy with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis for an applicant currently being treated for ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis


Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig disease, is a disease of motor neurons that results in progressive muscular atrophy and weakness. The neuro-degeneration affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, resulting in the death of nerve cells. Lou Gehrig was a famous baseball player who died of the disease in 1941. The disease generally occurs between ages 50 and 60 and slightly more often in men than in women.


Symptoms of ALS include involuntary muscle contractions and muscular atrophy, weakness, and twitching, especially in the muscles of the extremities. The individual may have problems with speech, chewing, swallowing, and even breathing if the brain stem is affected. There is no sensory nerve involvement. With all voluntary muscle action affected, the person in the later stages of the disease becomes totally paralyzed.


There is no effective treatment for ALS. Treatment is symptomatic and may include emotional as well as physical support. Persons afflicted with the disease are likely to become confined to a wheelchair or a bed, need to be taught to suction themselves to prevent choking, require assistance with personal hygiene, activities of daily living, and need a great deal of emotional support.

The antiglutamate drug riluzole (Rilutek) is the only medication approved by the FDA that appears to slow the progression of the disease and prolong the life of persons with ALS for at least a few months. Other drugs are undergoing clinical trials.
