When I saw my consultant he immediatly advised me to start on D3, so when I went home I rang my sister, who also has MS, and asked her what dosage of D3 she was taking, but she had never heard of D3, not from the consultant, or anyone else from the clinic.
I just find it a bit odd that if D3 is about to unlock some very important issues about MS, then why is it not offered as a basic starting treatment/therapy to all people with MS.
When I asked my GP, (who has been great from day one), if D3 is available on prescription because the consultant advised it, she told me it was the first time ever that she had heard D3 might play a role in MS, and she has a number of patients at the surgery with MS.
My sister now takes D3, after she rang the MS clinic to ask about it.
My point is, why is this info not shouted from the roof tops, if D3 is perhaps so important.
Perhaps I should not say this but, do you think a lot of treatments and advice varies depending on the age and attitude of the consultant, for instance my consultant comes across as youngish very positive person, so maybe he is fresh in his field and looking for answers and new options to help with MS, where as someone who has been “in the job” for many many years could just be sticking with routine.
I dont know, just a thought.
