About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis usually refers to the likely outcome of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The prognosis of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may include the duration of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, chances of complications of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
