In the disease, demyelination multiple sclerosis is the process that causes nervous system damage.  It is the reason for most symptoms related to the neurological disease.  Demyelination MS is the process of the destruction of the myelin sheath that surrounds and protects the nerves.  There is currently no known way to repair myelin, so demyelination is a serious problem.  It can cause lesions on the brain and the spinal cord in multiple sclerosis patients, so it is important for people to seek out treatment as soon as possible if they are diagnosed with the disease or if they have symptoms that could be related to demyelination.

There is no cure for demyelination, so it will get progressively worse over time.  It is important for anyone diagnosed with multiple sclerosis to take steps to ensure they are getting the right treatment.  It is important to have a treatment team including a primary care physician and a neurologist.  Other specialists to consider might be a registered dietician or nutritionist, a physical therapist, or a home caregiver.  These specialists can help to supplement a patient’s care and improve their overall quality of life by offering support and other forms of treatment.


Treatment for Demyelination MS


Although there is not a cure for demyelination or for multiple sclerosis, there are treatments available that can help with the symptoms.  There are also treatments that can slow down the progression of the disease.  A medical professional will be able to tell you what treatments are available for the stage of multiple sclerosis you are in.  It is very important to stay on top of treatments in order to slow down demyelination to avoid permanent physical disability.  Without treatment, nervous system damage can become so severe that even walking can become extremely difficult.

Most multiple sclerosis treatments are through injections or intravenous drips.  Injections may be able to be administered at home, if the patient is comfortable with it and they are educated on how to give themselves the medication.  It is important to do it properly in order to avoid infections.  An intravenous drip will need to be administered through a multiple sclerosis clinic or hospital.  While these medications may require time out of your schedule, they are very important to your overall wellbeing.  They are hopefully going to keep the multiple sclerosis in a state of remission and keep the demyelination process from progressing too quickly.
