Yes, in my opinion. In the first post of this thread, you reported that your blood test results for vitamin B12 was 472 pg/ml. In the book I am currently reading, Could It Be B12?
by Sally Pacholok, RN, BSN & her husband Jeffrey Stuart, D.O., in which they describe testing results, your result of 472 is borderline deficient.
They advocate (on page 11) the threshold needs to be raised "because deficiencies begin to appear in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) below 550 pg/ml." They say, "At this time, we believe normal serum B12 levels should be greater than 550 pg/ml. For brain and nervous system health and prevention of disease in older adults, serum B12 levels should be maintained near or above 1000 pg/ml."
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
