if i could go back to 2005 and know then what i know now, i am quite sure i would avoid being diagnosed with ms. i know i had b12 deficiency (among other nutritional problems that are also often seen in ms patients) from poor dietary choices. the docs didn't, due to a computer glitch. i wish i had known in time that i was speeding toward a brick wall without an airbag by being vegan and not taking supplements - if i had been more responsible i might not have ended up with permanent spinal cord damage. but that's just me. if there are ominous symptoms, a diagnostic doc is unlikely to look at nutrition first. that's the patient's responsibility - the sooner the better imho.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
