Healthy and balanced: In general, there is no specific diet for patients diagnosed with myasthenia, but maintaining a well-rounded and healthy diet is important in maintaining overall health. One particular concern for myasthenics is swallowing, and care should be taken to make sure that they are getting adequate nutrition without running the risk of choking or aspiration.
