Huh? what was it recorded at over the decades?Gender has become a dominant factor in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) during the last decades. Already with a ratio of 3.2 to 1 MS is gradually changing into a disease predominantly among women.
ScienceDaily (Apr. 29, 2007) — Over time, more women are developing multiple sclerosis (MS) than men, according to research that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's 59th Annual Meeting. In 1940, the ratio of women to men with MS in the United States was approximately two to one. By 2000, that ratio had grown to approximately four to one.
Cutter said the largest increase in the ratio has been for those whose MS started at younger ages.
LINKThe Canadian research shows:
In 1931, for every one man diagnosed with MS, 1.8 women received the diagnosis.
Around 1940, the picture starts to change. The rate of MS cases in men stays relatively the same, but in women, it rises.
And by 1980, for every one man diagnosed, more than three women develop MS.
Non-invasive assessment of endothelial function in normal pregnancy
Resting vessel diameter and blood flow were significantly increased in pregnancy, mainly after 30 weeks' gestation.
Normal pregnancy is associated with enhanced endothelial function which is apparent from at least 10 weeks' gestation.
