Yes, You CAN Die From Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Yes, You CAN Die From Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

It is commonly thought that Multiple Sclerosis (MS) does not lead to death. Understanding that this is the acceptable conclusion it is important to talk about the reality of Death and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Religious and medical professionals have a habit of deflecting questions about death when dealing with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It is up to us to discover the truth about the life expectancy of people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and ways to fend it off.

From the small bit of information out there it is possible to devise some of the reasons someone might die from Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but with the increase in Multiples Sclerosis (MS) diagnosis it is inevitable that more reasons for death exist and have most likely occured in the past, as will they continue in the future.

Some of the most commonly known reasons for Death involving Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are:

* Dehydration or Malnutrition as a result of difficulty swallowing or the inability to care for oneself.

* Kidney failure. Urinary tract infections, urine retention and sphincter dysfunction are common in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and of which could lead to kidney failure.

* Aspiration. Throat muscles not working can cause choking or inhalation of food or drink, which may cause pneumonia.

* Depression unaided or left without assistance can, and sadly often does, lead to suicide.

* Consequences of inactivity. These include infected bedsores, stasis pneumonia, and heart attacks.

* Zinc poisoning can cause an inflammation of serious Multiple Sclerosis (MS) symptoms resulting in death.

There have to be more ways out there that people will, and have, passed due to Multiple Sclerosis (MS) but the powers at be seem intent on hiding these facts from us. If you, or someone you love, suffers with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) know the facts about everything, including life expectancy, and demand the truth from your care givers.
