If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Hi chenman,
I will discuss the possibility of a serum ferritin test with my doctor. Our ThisIsMS member, jimmylegs, has recommend this for years, and I have been remiss in not requesting it.

There is no history of type II diabetes or liver diseases in my family that I am aware of.

With no link to insulin that I can see, this post of yours for Borrelia burgdorferi as the cause of your symptoms and chosen antibiotic treatment is more appropriate in the Antibiotics subforum, http://www.thisisms.com/forum/antibiotics-f28/, than a thread focusing on insulin, in my opinion.

Hi lyndacarol,
you wrote "Since there is no known cause for MS, I am open to any hypothesis and appreciate any information in any direction."
This was the reason for my lengthy "information in any direction": There IS a "known" cause for MS, but it seems that nobody wants to know.
I have tried to find someone to translate the 1962 book of Prof. Gabriel Steiner from German to English, but without success so far...

I have written in the antibiotics section already, but no discussion there - yet.

Scan it with OCR and then run it through Google's translator.

Well, I have the book, have had it for years, am German, can read it.
I don't have the neccessary equipment, I doubt that the automatic translation will be "readable".

But most of all the copyright by SPRINGER will not expire until well after 2050: a translatiion would have to be done in cooperation with the publisher / copyright owner. (There are lots of figures / photographs without which the book will be of littele value, even if the text would be near perfect...)

I guess I would have to write a new book in English along the lines of the 53 year old German one, but that is a major task, and this has low priority for me, there are tasks much more important.
