My question is....Is that alot of lesions? Does that indicate anything about his disease progression? I have tried to google it, but have only found people dignosised with much smaller amounts of lesions? I am so confused and so worried, we have 3 young children and he is only 40 and he has very reduced mobility already. What are we in for and how should we prepare? Thanks in advance.
Welcome to our community,wenditash; there are no definite answers for MS, but we will share our experiences in answer to your questions. There are reports of autopsies done on people diagnosed with MS – people who had severe symptoms – but NO lesions were found at autopsy. There are also many cases of people who have MANY lesions, but no MS symptoms. Some "experts" think there is no correlation between number of lesions and the course of MS.
No one can predict how it will go for your husband.
I encourage you to read the Diet forum here, and the dramatic story of Dr. Terry Wahls at her website http://www.TerryWahls.org
Keep searching and asking questions; we are here to help in any way we can; all the best to you and your family.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
