Cerebral Spinal Fluid Data

What is the significance of Glucose in CSF testing? Does anyone know? What about Protein? In June '05, when they took a sample of my CSF, the results were: CSF, GLUCOSE = 75; Reference Range=40-70

CSF, PROTEIN=42.6; Reference Range=15.0-40.0

Just curious if anyone knows anything about that?

Interesting articles

I like the NMSS as I have said before. Here are some articles from their current magazine. I don't know who Richard Cohen is - but his 87 year old father has MS which must give us hope for a reasonably long life - given the better treatments in the pipeline. And he is the third generation in his family to get MS which suggests to me that genes may play more of a role ...

This site was a serious site until that joker and attention seeker Lyon joined. I had lunch with Arron today and we feel that an official warning is needed. Lyon - you can post about worms and MS but no more postings about viagra, beavers or chocolate. HarryZ was very lonely in the period in which I banned him from posting - he claims that I apologised to him and begged him to come back ...

Gamma Globulin ...Any Connection?

new way to image neurons

Interesting research that could have MS implications down the road.

Watching the Insides of a Cell

MIT Technology Review -- Researchers at MIT's George R. Harrison Spectroscopy Lab have detected tiny twitches and vibrations in the membranes of individual cells and neurons by using a powerful and noninvasive imaging technique. Down the line, Michael Feld, director of the lab, hopes to use the technique to create three-dimensional images, illuminating even finer activities within living cells. ...

My experience with Avonex

I was one of the first patients to try Avonex after a single episode. I took part in the CHAMPS trial roughly nine years ago and I was on Avonex until July of this year.

There were definite benefits to taking the shot once a week. I mastered doing it right in my thigh, alternating thighs from one week to the other. I hated the side effects. I still remember feeling like crap for two ...

Question about treatment options for CIDS

I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me out with this or not, but I'm looking into which of the MS drugs you can take if you have not had a confirmed diagnosis (CDMS) of MS? I know someone can be labeled as CIDS which means they have had 1 symptom and a MRI, but they are not yet labeled CDMS.

I know you can take Avonex if you are CIDS, but ...

You know, after reading Loobies post, it really scares the crap out of me. I live every day in denial, resisting the fact that I may progress. I think to my self.... I haven't had any problems or symptoms of MS since June '05 when I had my first and only symptom (CIS). Maybe it was something else?? Maybe I don't have MS? Maybe I will be OK? More and more I read of those ...
