Thyroid Issues and interferon

Just followed an interesting line of research about thyroid problems and MS--since thryoid runs in my family. I found a study that says up to 24% of the people on interferon 1-a and 1-b develop hypothyroidism within the first year of treatment. Hypothyroidism can cause hair loss.

This study suggests you get tested if you're using interferon.

Thyroid and MS

Wondering if any of you have experienced thyroid issues or even been tested for them.

I recently found out that hypothyroidism runs on both sides of my family--brother, maternal aunt, mother, maternal great aunt, and now, paternal grandfather. I got curious and looked up thyroid and MS on the web and found this study, Prevalence of autoimmune thyroiditis and non-immune thyroid disease in multiple sclerosis:

Is it true? It could be bacteriostatic?

I don't know why, but it just upset me, it seems like such a weird thing> Does that mean others got cold sores etc?

My doctor is truly great, and in fact warned me to be alert that if I was feeling crappy or depressed it was the shingles, not a slide down the MS side of the hill. Which is in fact what I'm feeling now. He said its easy to forget that a ...

MS symptoms or betaferon side effects?

Hello everyone,

She also says that her arms and legs feel like they have just had an intense workout and the muscles are tired and sore.
Since we are new to all of this, could you pros tell me whether ...

HELP! Need a new doc to prescribe my LDN

As some of you might recall, I've been on LDN for 3 months and am doing BRILLIANTLY well! No problems at all, and all the usual improvements; LDN has been a Godsend! And of course I certainly wouldn't want to contemplate my future without it.

But unfortunately my nervous family doc says I must find someone ELSE to prescribe it for me ASAP. (Long story involving liability paranoia about losing her license over some potential ...

Tovaxin - T Cell therapy

Dear all,

The Boston Cure Project site has posted an article today about Tovaxin - a T Cell vaccine. An individual provides details of his success with this treatment. Does anyone have any more information on this treatment - looks promising?

It's interesting how those treatments which stop attacks (Campath and Tovaxin), rather than just reduce attacks (the CRAB drugs only reduce the attacks by ...

Texas

I seem to recall chatter about a pharmacy in Austin that provides LDN, but now I can't find any information on it. Does anyone know the name of the pharmacy and/or contact information? I'm in the process of getting a prescription.

Thanks.
