How do you make a regession for data that has a log-normal distribution? The GLM function does not support this type of distribution.
Could anyone help me?

Take the log transformation of the data and then it will have a normal distribution. Do the regression on the transformed data. Just remember when interpreting the results that the regression coefficients are in the units of the log-transformed scores, not the original data.
