Corticosteroids and MS (Part 1)

Corticosteroids and MS (Part 1)
Each of us has been treated with Cortisteroids, and Corticosterioids have been used in the treatment of MS since 1950, and today they are the treatment therapy in the treatment of relapse of the disease. The main goal of treatment emergent functional recovery of neurological deficits and prevent the accumulation of neurological deficits that are acquired during an acute exacerbation.

With this introduction, they surely started moving your questions around the head. So let's go.

What are corticosteroids?

Corticosteroids are drugs we call steroid hormones. They are synthetically produced hormones and used to treat various pathological conditions in humans. They share glucocorticoids and Mineralocorticoids, and a primitive glucocorticoid is a cortisol that glows the adrenal gland.
They can be applied locally as an aerosol-inhalable, skin cream, eye drops or nose, given as tablets, locally into the common space, intravenously and intramuscularly. Drugs from the group of corticosteroids that are mostly used in neurology are: Nirypan, Dexason, Lemod solu. Lemod depot, prednisone, hydrocortisone, Diprophos and others.

How corticosteroids work on the body?

Glucocorticoids have an effect on the metabolism of glucose, proteins and fats, as well as long-term adaptation of the organism to stressful situations. Mineralocorticoids participate in the regulation of the concentration of electrolytes in the body (sodium, potassium), and the main representative is aldosterone, a hormone that enhances sodium resorption in the renal tubules and the secretion of potassium into the urine.
The immune system works shortly after administration, used to achieve rapid clinical improvement before other drugs begin to act. Corticosteroids are used to treat inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. They improve the state of the immune response.
In addition to the significant therapeutic effects they have, they can also lead to the occurrence of a number of side effects, especially when taken long-term. Their use beyond the control of a physician can lead to adverse reactions as it acts hormonally, mainly in terms of adrenaline (an adrenaline disorder can cause heartburn). Therefore, they are only used in severe cases, and usually the therapy takes relatively shortly with the supervision of a doctor.

Why is it important to take into account the amount of salt in food while you are on corticosteroid therapy?

If you have prescribed corticosteroid drugs you need to reduce the amount of salt in your diet. All corticosteroids affect the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, as well as the balance of water and electrolytes. Too much salt increases the feeling of thirst as well as the amount of fluid in the body that can lead to edema (islet) and high blood pressure.

Useful tips (Recommendations for nutrition during the use of drugs from the group of corticosteroids.):
  1. When cooking, replace some of the salts with herbs: parsley, pepper, ren, white and onion, ale pepper, basil basil, ginger, lemon juice, ...
  2. Experiment with spices, browse some chef and enjoy new tastes.
  3. Get the brine from the table.
  4. Do not use Vegeta, the spice C and similar finished spices.
  5. Avoid buying and using processed food and finished products added with it.
  6. When buying finished products, read their composition and give preference to products without added salt.
  7. Avoid fast food kiosks.
  8. At work, on a trip, consume food stored at home (sandwich, salad, pie, proya, etc.) or buy fruit, yoghurt, fruit juice, and whole biscuits. Instead of tinned vegetables (sour cabbage, turkey, pickles, canned beets, etc.), use fresh and frozen vegetables now in abundance and during the winter months. Use as little dried meat as you can, and for dinner or breakfast you can take a piece of meat from lunch, then egg or non-cheese.
  9. Instead of bread that is often salty, in some meal during the day, use bread substitutes: rice, potatoes, cereals, cooked cereals, butter or salt-free pastries

Food Sustainability

Food Sustainability
When we go to the procurement, we need to carefully select the type of food we buy, and it is very important to check the shelf life, or the date of production, in order to prevent possible negative health consequences. Here are some of the most common questions about food sustainability.


What does the term of food lasts and what is the sustainability of certain foods? The shelf life is the minimum shelf life, the date by which the food retains its characteristic properties if properly stored. Food sustainability depends on the composition, the technological process of production, the sterilization process, the food additives, the type of packaging, the transport and the recommended manner of storage. Some foods are more susceptible to microbiological deterioration and have a short shelf-life. Such products are milk products, creams, shames, ice creams, meat and meat products, eggs. Other foods are subject to chemical changes, especially under the influence of air, an…

Color of MS! Everyday!

Color of MS! Everyday!
Multiple sclerosis or MS, as we call it short, means a lot. But first of all, you must be strong and have to invest a lot of energy to make your life look the same as before the illness. How many of the bizarre things I will emphasize today are actually very important in everyday life and really help how crazy it sounds. A few tips for a safer everyday life with multiple sclerosis:
1. Always leave important things like keys, phone, purses, glasses in the same place. If you have not had a place for these things, now find it. Always return the things to where they stand because you know how to hurry somewhere. You can never find keys, cell phone or glasses. If they are always in the same place this will never be a problem. A lot of stressful situations will be avoided if you adopt this new routine. 2. Close the kitchen cabinets - yes, always close them. You know how awkward we can be and you know that you will quickly forget that you have opened them. I learned this a…
