Abet Guidaben, former member of the Crispa Redmanizers of the Philippines Basketball Association was recently diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis.  Guidaben was began showing symptoms of the disease when he was in Chicago last June 19 at a PBA Legends benefit game to raise money for scholarships to aid poor students in the Philippines.

His situation was so serious that he was in the Intensive Care Unit in an unnamed hospital in New Jersey. He has had difficulty speaking (dysarthria), swallowing (dysphagia), breathing and suffers from double vision. No update has been given since July 30th.

Even an athlete, who is healthy and strong can be hit with Myasthenia Gravis.

  2. Sir i have a friend who also suffers with myasthenia gravis, she’s 38 years old. As a friend i recommend her AGEL products UMI which is immune booster, EXO anti oxidant food supplement in gel suspension form. First in the philippines. It works well on her after 1 week of taking the products she’s now recovering well and doing her everyday chores normally and hoping to be normal again. Were both from san pedro laguna.
