Facing new challenges with MS and old age
The average age of an MS diagnosis globally is 32 years old, therefore it is commonly seen as a younger person’s disease. However, ageing with MS presents a new set of challenges.
This lecture looks at how MS changes as you age, and the new challenges you may face. In the lecture Dr Melinda Magyari also explains the relation between ageing and MS disease progression and inflammation. Finally, she explains some considerations for older people when thinking about their MS treatment and therapies.
