WHAT IS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common central nervous system
diseases diagnosed in young adults. Annually, around 2,500 people in Poland

receive this diagnosis – most often (70%) the patients are women between the
ages of 20 and 40. The causes of multiple sclerosis are not fully known, however
scientists indicate that the risk of the disease may increase with vitamin D
deficiency, smoking, or the presence of autoimmune disorders – thyroid disease or
type I diabetes.
Multiple sclerosis is a disease that attacks myelin, which is responsible for the
construction of the nerve fibre sheaths. In the course of the disease, the sheaths
are destroyed and the ‘naked’ fibres are unable to properly transmit signals from
the central nervous system. As a result, the patient may suffer permanent damage
of the nervous system if treatment is not implemented quickly enough. Early
diagnosis of the disease and prompt initiation of appropriate treatment provides
patients with the chance to control the disease and alleviate its symptoms.
