      Have you experienced difficultly chewing or swallowing due to muscular dystrophy?

      What are some personal experiences and useful hints to maintain healthy eating habits when chewing and swallowing ? Do you adapt your food, such as mince, puree, mash?

      Example: Adding some kind of sauce to food to make it easier to swallow. I have used applesauce when I needed to swallow large pills.

      After a dose of pneumonia I had to adjust my eating habits and the advice I got was eat alone, no talking ,eat small amounts and take a sip of water and swallow slowly also the use of a liquidizer was recommended for better swallowing.

      Like many others with MD I have trouble swallowing. Fortunately I like hot salsa and digest it well. I smother most anything with tomato sauce or salsa and it goes down fine. My wife complains that everything must taste the same, but I like the taste!
