  1. Hi, my sister is 28 years old and she has been having myasthenia gravis basically her whole life. I was searching on if a certain diet would help my sister to have more strength because she has been having trouble lately with her strength and her eyes have been extremely feeling weak . I came across your page and it has been absolute refreshing to hear from someone other than a doctor to give advice to people about this disorder. Thank you so much for all your post and please continue . You are inspiring and I cannot wait to show my sister about this blog. Again thank you and i cant wait to read more of your future post.
