into this pill. The stomachpain and nausea are unbearable, I actually threw up at work today. My body tends to reject everything i put in it like poison. This is hard because im also diabetic. I was previously on Avonex and the flue like symptoms never went away. Im at the point that i want to take nothing. I see my neuro next week. She will not be pleased with this decision. Is therr any holistic treatment out there? Help
Welcome to ThisIsMS, hargravet1.
I have not used Tecfidera; therefore, I cannot offer suggestions for that. I used Betaseron for three years, Avonex for over seven years, and Copaxone for six months, but I did not feel any one of these was effective and stopped all disease-modifying drugs several years ago.
Because I believe my MS symptoms are due to my chronic high insulin level since puberty, I am interested in your mention that you are diabetic. I assume you have type II diabetes. I am not diabetic, but I know that type II diabetes is marked by insulin resistance in the cells and high insulin levels. Has your GP (or endocrinologist) ordered a "fasting blood insulin test"? – This test is NOT the same as a glucose/blood sugar test.
There is no medication available to reduce the insulin level. Only diet is effective at lowering the insulin level. I urge you to read the Diet forum here at ThisIsMS. All the best to you.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
