If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Status of nutrition education in medical schools.

On average, students received 23.9 contact hours of nutrition instruction during medical school (range: 2-70 h).

No wonder my doctor didn't want to talk about nutrients. At least she was frank with me about her not knowing about them.

It's sad, isn't it? I bet there are a whole lot of people with nutrient related neuro issues that are being improperly treated. Here's to self-education and advocacy!! (And Jimmylegs)

Ya know...I bet if there were an app for this, doctors might become a bit more proactive with the nutrient levels. Heck, I'd use an app...Jimmylegs could source everything...I know there are techie folks on here...
