Multiple sclerosis can target any person at any time, but statistics show that some people are more likely to suffer from it, than others.
Age group for the first diagnosis tends to be between 20 to 40 years, and women are two times more likely to have multiple sclerosis than men. The exact number of sufferers around the world is unknown and hard to establish, but it is estimated that about 2.5 million of people are diagnosed so far.
Geographical placement of a person and heritage can also play an important part. Statistics show that countries further form equator have more cases of multiple sclerosis than those of hotter climate, closer to equator. Those who come from Africa and Asia have a significantly lower risk of being diagnoses with multiple sclerosis. In the southern parts of the world, there are around 57-78 cases per 100.000 people. It is known that only in the United States alone, there are 200 new diagnoses each week.
Those with some other diseases also have higher risk of getting multiple sclerosis. Type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease and inflammatory bowel disease are amongst them. Some infections are also linked to triggering multiple sclerosis, like Epstein-Barr, varicella-zoster and herpes.
When it comes to multiple sclerosis types, 85% of patients firstly get diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. 50% of them later transition into secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis is an expensive disease to treat. It is estimated that approximately $8.500-54.000 is needed annually for one patient’s treatment.
Pregnancy can change multiple sclerosis symptoms for that period of time. While pregnancy lasts women usually don’t experience any relapses, however, soon after the delivery, 20%-40% of women have relapses again.

Everything is done naturally and pleasantly here. Actually I do not feel sick, it is the most important thing – during these 12 days I haven’t felt sick.
I didn’t have the impression that I was treated like a patient. I was treated like a normal person, it is true I take medicines, receive infusions and still have some pain, but I never felt like I was in the hospital.continue
