MS Life Expectancy – Does MS Affect Life Expectancy?

MS Life Expectancy – Does MS Affect Life Expectancy?

#health, #style, #beauty

The first thing to consider when thinking about MS life expectancy is that it is really all about averages. There is an average life expectancy for all different types of conditions that a person can suffer from just as there is an average for a person with no medical conditions or diseases.

Research shows that the average life expectancy for people with MS is only slightly lower than that of the general population. Advances in health care for people with severe MS has been effective in reducing premature deaths.

The simple answer to the question is Yes … MS does affect life expectancy. Multiple Sclerosis in itself does not cause death and many people with Multiple Sclerosis live a normal life span and die from unrelated causes. Research shows however that on average the life expectancy of a person with Multiple Sclerosis is around 7 years less than that of the rest of the population.

Areas of particular concern are chest and bladder infections. As disability from Multiple Sclerosis increases so also does the risk from these type of infections. On average two thirds of people with MS die from these type of infections.

The good news is that with the improvements in healthcare and medication, the gap between a 'normal' life expectancy and the life expectancy of a person with Multiple Sclerosis is reducing. It is not yet known what effect Multiple Sclerosis drugs such as the interferons will have on MS life expectancy.

If you have been diagnosed with MS there are many many things that you can do to help improve your condition and well being. You need to focus on what you can do as opposed to what you have no control over. Four areas that I concentrated on were Mindset, Diet, Stress and Exercise. These are simple things that you can do right now and may well help towards improving your Multiple Sclerosis and hopefully life expectancy.
