At Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS), we are committed to determining what lifestyle factors contribute to the progression of MS. We have commenced a major international research project to examine this, and need your help. The study is approved by St Vincent’s Human Research Ethics Committee in Australia. We hope to enrol many thousands of people with MS (PwMS) in this study from our OMS website, Taking Control of Multiple Sclerosis Facebook page, and our Twitter followers.
PwMS who consent to the study will fill in an online questionnaire about factors related to their lifestyle (eg. diet, exercise, sun exposure, vitamin D, Omega-3 supplementation, stress reduction) and their health-related quality of life, among other questions. Over time, we intend to follow this group at yearly intervals to see if there is a relationship between changes in these lifestyle factors and the health of the group. Click here for more information.
