Sugar Again...The More We Learn about Multiple Sclerosis

Monday, April 22, 2013

As time passes we learn more about sugar and how it affects our health. I struggle with a sugar addiction that gets the best of me more often than I would have ever imagined.


Like many of you I read the Spark Health News often as well as other health sources to keep myself as healthy as I can. Sugar is often at the center of many of our health problems, something I wish I had known sooner.

I am part of the Sparking with M.S. team and recently found this study:

ntent/meeting_abstract/80/
1_MeetingAbstracts/P04.130


CONCLUSIONS: Glucose levels are a strong predictor of disability progression as measured by EDSS and timed walk. Further studies examining this association longitudinally are necessary to prove a causal relation between glucose levels and disability progression. This can open the way for testing some of the multiple interventions used in diabetes as potential MS disease modifying agents.

I am not surprised. As time passes I think we will learn what we have always known, use common sense and eat right.
