Health Insurance for Multiple Sclerosis with Persisting Symptoms
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). This disorder causes the immune system to attack the healthy tissues in the CNS and affects the brain, optic nerves and the spinal cord.
Worldwide 2.3 million people are estimated to be affected by this degenerative disease. Although scientists and doctors have yet to find a cause or cure for it, they are able to modify the course of this disease to some extent. This is done by reducing the frequency of relapses and delaying the progression of disability with the help of medication and therapy. Additionally, many advances in physical therapy and technology have allowed people to manage their symptoms and resulting disabilities better.
Multiple sclerosis is neither contagious nor genetic. However research has indicated that genetic risk factors may increase the risk of developing multiple sclerosis. It usually affects people between 20 and 50 years of age, although individuals as young as 2 and as old as 75 have been diagnosed with it. People of all ethnicities are susceptible but Caucasians of northern European ancestry are more apt to have this disease.
Persisting symptoms are widespread and different from individual to individual at different stages of the disease. These may include among other symptoms:
• Blurred vision and blindness
