New Study: Inadequate cerebral blood flow in MS

The study out of NYU looks at cerebrovascular reactivity, or CVR. CVR is how the brain reacts or responds with blood flow when there is vasodilation. This function is extremely important, as neurons need adequate blood flow to provide glucose and oxygenation. Without this response of adequate cerebral bloodflow (CBF), the brain will not function properly, and neurons can potentially die.

Saturated fat vers Co. oil

Have any of you researched current diets? I've read that we should stay away from sat. fat. But that comes from a book 5 yrs old. I believe that Coconut oil is more nutritious than Olive oil. I can take 2 ts of C. oil in the morning with my Tecfidera and feel fine. If I take Olive oil instead, I feel sick. My meds require fat. But I've read ANY sat. fat is bad.

Expert consensus on disease-modifying therapies in MS

A growing body of evidence suggests that early control of disease activity in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) plays a key role in preventing disability, prolonging the period of being active and engaged, and protecting quality of life.

For that reason, MS experts are calling for early and full access to all disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) for patients with MS...... Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/drugsresearch

Risk of MS increased by low testicular function

Testicular hypofunction and multiple sclerosis risk: A record-linkage study.

Pakpoor J, Goldacre R, Schmierer K, Giovannoni G, Goldacre MJ.

Abstract

The influence of gonadal hormones on multiple sclerosis is not well characterised and has thus far been investigated primarily in animal models or as a proposed therapeutic approach.

We investigated a potential association between testicular hypofunction, as a proxy for low testosterone levels, and multiple sclerosis risk through analysis of linked English national Hospital Episode ...
