Blood pressure drug hope for Multiple Sclerosis

Amiloride was found to reduce degeneration of nerve tissue in mice and the team at Oxford University are now planning a trial in MS patients.

It works by blocking the build up of high levels of calcium ...

Sugar, testosterone and oestrogen

I thought this new discovery might have some relevance to MS: we know that the level and ratio of oestrogen to testosterone is important in neuroprotection, and finding that a diet high in sugar can destroy that balance fits in very nicely with the fact that MS seems to go hand in hand with a modernised, (and therefore high sugar), lifestyle. The only spanner in the works is that this article suggests high levels of ...

Hi Jake

I've never used the tablet method. I'm assuming that you mean people that buy the 50 mg tablet and dissolve it in water to divide into smaller doses. I have always said that if I could not get a prescription, I would go this route. I can only assume that the same result could be had with this method.

IL 27

IL-27 Anti-Inflammation Molecule Helps Fight MS-Like Disease 12 November 2007

An immune system messenger molecule that normally helps quiet inflammation could be an effective tool against multiple sclerosis (MS). Neurology researchers led by Abdolmohamad Rostami, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Neurology at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University and the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience in Philadelphia, have found that the protein interkeukin-27 (IL-27) helped block the onset or reverse ...

Hi Jake

Your news is good but doesn't surprise me. I've been on LDN for the last 5 years. What does worry me is that you mentioned that you are using a local compounder. Is he familiar with LDN or did you have to basically tell him what to do? I started out with a local compounder and I had to explain to them what I needed them to do with the fast release filler. After 6 ...

Help

Hello,

I am 25, white female and I suspect that I may have MS. I had gone to see a doctor about 2 years ago when I experienced my first episode of non-severe, but hardly dismissable neurological symptoms. He ran some tests and then told me nothing is wrong and not to worry about it.
