I was wondering if any of you guys had any anecdotal or personal experience with vit D supplementing? Is it actually helpful in slowing the disease progression at it's early stages? What is a safe dosage to take on a daily basis? Is 10,000ui okay? 20,000?
What are you guys taking and has it had any effect?
Also I was wondering how many of you are using helminths to slow progression. Are they working? What types and how many?
Is there Anyone who lives in the UK and are involved in the Nottingham uni study??
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! VQ
Geez, I've been going steadily downhill since I started taking 4000 IU of vit D a little over a year ago - faster and faster since then. Same with Vit B12. Seriously, I had negligible symptoms at diagnosis 8 years ago, but once I started dabbling in vitamins, supplements, made recommended changes to my already healthy diet, etc. - and finally quit smoking completely (was still puffing them some at dx) - I've become a major MS casualty.

someone i know has been having trouble getting d3 levels up taking 10,000 - 20,000 IU per day. zinc levels are on the low side and they had not been taking calcium, magnesium, or zinc. that has now been started up, and the daily d3 intake has been lowered. results of the new approach still pending. we'll see!
The response to effector epitopes may outnumber the Tregitopes, resulting in an initial inflammatory
response. As antigen is cleared and the ratio of Ig to antigen increases, the balance tips toward tolerance, diminishing immune
response and reducing further tissue damage and adverse systemic effects.
