Rebif here. I am scared with PML and interferons are almost 0 risk for it. Long time drug history is important for me. Side effects were tolerable.
It will be a trial and error for first DMD.
Pain! You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer
Pain! Oh let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from... Pain!
Zyklon - I couldn't agree more - everyone is different and therapies will affect us all differently, but just wanted to see what everyone's pref was with these DMDs.
Elliot- thanks for sharing! I've been considering Copaxone as well. Glad it seems to be working well for you. Would you mind sharing what the rest of your regime is?
Here is a summary of what I follow:
High good fat diet, virtually no vegetables or fruits or carbs. (Vegetables in very small quantities limited basically to what I grow myself except for cabbage which I ferment, fruits limited to blueberries, raspberries, black berries, lemons & limes (I currently use frozen berries to make water Kefir but am in the process of switching to freeze dried berries and freeze dried lemons/limes).
And yes, I consume only fatty grass fed meats, high Omega 3 chicken, turkey and duck, and ultra high Omega 3 chicken eggs)
And yes, my blood work shows I am quite healthy in every regard.
Soaps: chemical free soaps only such as Castile soaps
No chemical cleaners except for occasional Windex use– use steam to clean, no fabric softeners for laundry
Chemical free personal hygiene products.
Supplements – over 50 supplements daily, many thought to help control/reduce inflammation. I use pharmaceutical grade products whenever available or take products without fillers (not always possible). I do take high doses of vitamin D3 and biotin.
Pre-Biotics, Pro Biotics, DigestiveEnzyme Supplements. I also consume a lot of home made fermented drinks and foods.
3-5 Hours of light exercise daily. Some occasional moderate exercise.
Totally Gluten Free
Almost totally Dairy free except for the grass fed milk I use to make milk Kefir (only consume several tablespoons a day) and a very small amount of grass fed cheese.
Lectin free or reduced as much as possible.
I also do oxygen and massage therapy.
The above is not easy to follow, especially the diet and the only thing I am certain of that I have no idea what, if anything, is helping me. And there is no way of knowing. After all, the disease may have just gone into remission.
But for the moment I am doing well and do not plan to make any major changes in the future. One day at a time...
