It sounds like the Ottawa conference was a success! Congrats to all involved. I found it interesting that Dr. McGuckin is diagnosing May Thurner in 70% of patients. I frequently hear from his patients that they had stenoses in five veins (both jugulars, azygous, renal and iliac). He seems to be more broad in his definition of what qualifies as a stenosis.

Good find Cece....

Did a little research on May Thurner and what i find interesting is this....
May-Thurner Syndrome is often unrecognized; however current estimates are that this condition is three times more common in women than in men. It typically presents in the second to fourth decades of life.
Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't this about the same ratio of women versus men dx ms..???? Or, aren't most ms'ers dx between age 20 and 40..??? What would be interesting
in this is out of that 70 percent study how many were women...??? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May-Thurner_syndrome


Or this study on Vitamin D.....
The results add to evidence that lack of vitamin D can lead to impaired vascular health, contributing to high blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Correct me if i'm wrong but aren't
most ms'ers lacking vitamin D..???? Or, isn't ms most prevalent in the extreme northern and southern hemisphere..???

The more i follow this forum and research MS the more convinced i am that ms is a vascular disease or at least ms has a vascular component...
