Please notice that Ebers shows that relapses have no bearing on time to reach SPMS or the 6,8 and 10 markers on EDSS.
And they do not prevent disability....there's no science behind that marketing claim.
The real biomarker is not white matter lesions, it's gray matter atrophy--that's the one thing tied to disability and MS progression.

I also am on the best bet diet and a bunch of vitamins, the main one being vitamin d. When I was dx with MS, I decided I was going to do everything I could meds, diet and vitamins as soon as possible. You see one of my Uncle's also had MS and I watched him die a terrible death. Being older than my sister and me he never had the chance to use Copaxone, or the internet to find out about diet and things like vitamin d. Good luck, Dave

Dr. Swank saw people doing the drugs and determine they did worse. Roger MacDougall and Dr. Wahls gave up the drugs for diet. Most of the studies done on the drugs were done by the drug companies. Do not see how anyone can believe anything the drug companies say. They are just trying to sell their drugs. If you want to see what people taking Copaxone have to say Check out the ask a patient web site. All drugs have side effect so why take the chance if you don't have to. e
