Osteoporosis and Multiple Sclerosis – A Common Match

Apparently it is not uncommon for MSers to also be diagnosed with Osteoporosis. Robert Herndon, an MS specialist says although Osteoporosis is a common disease, it is "more common and more serious in those with multiple sclerosis." He talks about osteoporosis, emphasizing the MS relationship in an article for the International Journal of MS Care. The abstract, in one bolded paragraph, is followed by an easy-to-read and informative article.

In 2006, Laura Lawes was diagnosed with Multiple Scelrosis and given a life expectancy of one year. Three years later, she was not only living strong, but she gave birth to her first son. It was called "a miracle birth". These miracles are possible today, because of the work organizations, such as yourself, have done. Here, at Disease.com (a website dedicated to disease preventions and treatments) we are inspired by stories such as this, and would like to join you in fighting this cause. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Lets create more of these miracles; together.If you want more information on that please email me back with the subject line as your URL.
