Hi... Diagnosed with MS a month ago...

Postby jokoh1705 » Fri Jan 27, 2012 9:12 am

Hi... I am 39 and residing in Sunny Island, Singapore. I was recently diagnosed with MS and have not decided on which treatment to start. The problem in Singapore is that there is really not many choices. Only betaferon and rebif are available here. Can anyone advise on which may be more beneficial?

Here are some sites which have what others have to say about the drugs. There is Dr. Swanks diet if you do not want to do the drugs.

I may have to relocate to Singapore soon. I am finding it hard to find information on MS in Singapore, specially treatment / medication costs. For instance, how does Rebif cost per month? Also, what is the official source to be consulted in what regards MS health care in Singapore?

Can you please help with some info?
Thank you!

not a Singapore local and I don't know about meds, but other than that.. aside from a good nutrient dense diet, if a resource for nutritional supplements helps, I found this one: http://nutrimaxorganic.com/supplements/index.html
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
