CIS and MRI

Hello,

I read on the UK MS website:

"Low risk of developing MS: When CIS is not accompanied by MRI-detected brain lesions, the person has about a 20 percent chance of developing MS over the same period of time".

How can that be?

What if the neurological symptoms were caused by an infection or another disorder that is not linked to MS (e.g. vitamin d/b12 deficiency)?

I was tested with brain and spine MRIs, as ...

Hand grip strength could be used to assess MS progression

Hand grip strength could be used to assess the progression of MS

After comparing changes in grip strength in people with multiple sclerosis (MS) to other assessment tools currently used, such as the timed 25-foot walk and Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score, researchers have found that hand function has a strong correlation with quality of life measures in people with MS...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/hand-grip-strength-could-be-used-assess-progression-ms-060617

A blood test could detect childhood MS

Research has found that children are 10 times more likely than adult patients to generate key proteins used to identify multiple sclerosis (MS). This means that a simple blood test could speed up the diagnosis of MS in childhood...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/blood-test-could-detect-childhood-ms-020617

On Overlooking the Obvious

I can’t believe how I overlooked 2 critical elements.

​1) I overlooked the Autonomic Nervous System which controls involuntary functions – (involuntary control of internal organs, heart rate, digestion, bladder and bowel function, respiratory rate, papillary response, vasomotor action on the blood vessels) and in particular that it leads from the spine to connect to the brain.

2) Preoccupied with the health of the inner layer of the veins – the endothelium - I overlooked ...

getting closer to an urine test

We are getting closer to have an urine test:

https://link.springer.com/article/10.10 ... 017-0661-6

The objective was to investigate the level of some urinary metabolites (urea, uric acid and hippuric acid) in patients with MS and correlate their levels to the severity of the disease, MS subtypes and MS treatment.

... The values of urinary urea, uric acid and hippuric acid in MS patients were significantly decreased, and these metabolites in ...
