Myasthenia Gravis is a rare (about 30 cases per 1,000,000 people) autoimmune disease that weakens muscles and increases the ability to become fatigued. It physically effects the eyelids, which become droopy. While the disease is liveable and treatable, more people should become aware of myasthenia gravis because the symptoms can change a person’s life.
Development of the disease is gradual, but the symptoms can be appear quickly and suddenly. People with MG become weaker after physical activity and then regain strength after periods of rest. Muscles most often effected are in the head region, including the muscles that control chewing, talking, swallowing, and facial expressions. Surgery of the thyrus is an effective option for controlling the disease, but many people are not eligible for surgery. So, awareness must spread for the prevention of MG.
Promotional products spread awareness and messages in a form that’s tangible. People will have the product to remember it by, unlike a commercial in which the only way to remember the message is in our minds. ePromos has custom logo imprinted items like logo plastic bags, printed die-cut bags, and custom logo bags that bring MG awareness right into their homes.
