Leigh’s disease is classified as a neurmetabolic disorder, which means that managing the metabolism and ensuring that the body functions properly can be the best way to delay or treat the symptoms. One of the densest sources of Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is asparagus, and this essential vitamin has been linked directly to combating the effects of this disease. For very small children, asparagus in formula form is acceptable, but if the sufferer is older, adding asparagus to the daily diet is the best option.
