Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder affecting the central nervous system sensory (i.e., touch, taste, smell) and motor (i.e., walking) functions. The condition becomes progressively worse over time if not effectively treated. There are several types of MS, but about 85% of those affected have Relapsing-Remitting MS. This means patients experience unpredictable, sudden attacks, followed by periods without symptoms getting worse. Symptoms of MS vary from mild symptoms, like numbness or fatigue to severe symptoms, like loss of vision or difficulty walking. There are about 400,000 people in the U.S. living with MS, with three times more women than men affected. The condition is typically diagnosed anywhere from age 20 to age 50. Although there is no cure, medications, can help reduce inflammation and lengthen periods between attacks.
Research shows patients who stick to their medication regimen have a better chance of effectively managing MS and living a quality life. MSLogic empowers you with education and information to manage your disease, and we work closely with your health plan and doctor to meet your treatment goals. You’ll have 24-hour access to nurses and pharmacists who can help you better manage your condition.
