wow, then with all my white matter lesions, i might not have a super amt of iron
...some good news in all this...
the white matter lesions are also a sign of microvascsular problems--which of course goes along to some degree with CCSVI theory--but also goes along with hypertension and arteriosclerosis. I think it would benefit all of us to get blood pressure checked (turns out mine is sporadically very high) and treated, AND follow a diet (and supplements) that deals with arteriosclerosis--low fat, complex carbs, very low sugar, etc etc
I had to get a neck xray a few months ago for chiro--hesitated because I've been absolutely blitzed these past ten years with cat scans, xrays etc, but finally decided my neck needed close attention--and now, super glad did it--it showed calcification in carotid artery --doc listened with stethoscope, luckily no changes yet in arterial flow--so now much more diligent with diet and supplements, AND have started EDTA chelation to help clean out the arteries (...and veins...).
So, my point is, MS is not a one focus disease--many aspects, and ALL need to be addressed.
