Disability in patients with multiple sclerosis: Influence of insulin resistance, adiposity, and oxidative stress

Conclusion: This is the first study to demonstrate an increase IR prevalence and the association between IR and adiposity with disability assessed by EDSS in patients with MS. IR seems to be associated with chronic inflammatory process and oxidative stress in patients with MS. More studies are warranted to elucidate the mechanisms by which IR and adiposity could contribute to the progression and disability in patients with MS. (Source: Nutrition)
