pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
For many different reasons, some of us have chosen not to do any MS medications (injectables or oral) at all. In my case, I tried three different injectables (Betaseron, Avonex, Copaxone) for about 10 years and saw no improvements. Scientists do not know the cause of MS, and until they do, I see no way they can find a truly effective treatment. Today's FDA-approved drugs for MS are no more effective than placebo.
Since I believe that excess insulin is deeply involved in MS symptoms, I think diet holds the greatest promise of controlling this disease. One dramatic example is found in the story of Dr. Terry Wahls and her regimen of diet and exercise: http://www.TerryWahls.com
I encourage you to read the Diet forum here at ThisIsMS. Do your reading, ask your questions – you know yourself best and will make the decision that is right for you. All the best to you.
