The. Idaho KreePna, * The Xe.vsTribune, Monday. Febru.,-,-3 ,975- A -4 Dr. Lamb M.S. cause uncertain Berry's World B) Lawrence EM Lamb. MI). DEAR DR LAMB - I have iusl been lolii iliai I hav» mulli- pie sclerosis icuss. cuss' I would appreciate any inform a t i o n lhal you can provide. Particularly what are my odds of living and {or hoiv loiig' 1 Of course. Ihis question refers lo the average multiple sclerosis p a t i e n t . W h a t can I do for myself 0 DEAR R E A D E K - Cuss, cuss is right, because il can be a r e a l p r o b l e m . M u l t i p l e sclerosis is one of those diseases that is poorly understood by medical science. We still are not sure whai causes it. There is some evidence lhal it is caused by a slow virus You are probably used (o t h i n k i n g of v i r u s e s c a u s i n g sudden illnesses, as with ihe common cold There now appears to We a whole group of very slow-acting viruses that cause problems even years ader the infection starts. But. we still are not sure that this is true, of multiple sclerosis. Characteristically, multiple sclerosis, called M's. for short, causes the outside cover of nerve fibers, called the mvelin Hf'nfs from He/oise Cloth remnants can be recycled Dear Heloise: We are learning more ways to love the earth, to maintain a delicate balance, and to return what we are given and be thankful. In this connection, here is a liltlo ecology tidbit for anyone who sews. If you have ever wondered what to do with all those odds and ends of fabric left over after cutting out a garment, don't throw them in the wastebasket or put them up and never use them. Recycle them! There are many dubs and organizations that would be glad to get them to make into quilts, etc., or they can be taken to a rag processing plant If you have access to one. They eventually end. up being made into a variety of things we use everyday. Carol Ann · · * The old adage "waste not. want not," seems to be especially apropos today... Thanks for the tip, Carol Ann, Heloise « · · Dear Heloise: Do you have someone important to you who calls and chats for an hour daily? I do! Here are some tips to keep those calls from bringing your housework to a standstill. Have a nine or ten foot coiled receiver cord attached to your kitchen phone -- the cost ia negligible -- so that you can reach most any. spot in your kitchen while chatting. I save my morning dishwashing for her calls, then I dig right in. Seems the chore is done in no time. If you finish and she is still talking, polish the silver, clean the stove, cabinets, or refrigerator. You guessed i t . . . my kitchen is by far the cleanest room in the house. Talker P.S. Please don't sign my name, Heloise... she reads your column, too! · · * Dear Heloise: Just discovered a tip I'd like to share with you and your readers! You know how, when you've browned the chicken, and are ready to add a bit of water for steaming, you're liable to have your hands sprayed with hot grease? Try an ice cube! By the time it melts, the lid is safely on, your hands are in no danger, and you're smiling smugly for being so smart! Ada Lee Smith » « * Dear Heloise: Here is a very simple hint that I, as a young bride, did not know and thank my mother-in-law for passing on to me. My husband loves biscuits and I use the ready-made mix. The instructions tell you to just spoon-drop them, but they never turned out really great like hers. All my mother-in-law does is lightly roll out the dough with a glass dipped in flour, and cut out the biscuits with the glass. It makes all the difference in the world. Cindy Abernathy · * · Honey, you are so right. It is so simple when you know how and such a revelation when you don't. ·., That's what this 'column is for: to pass along tilings that we assume everyone knows, but so often do not. Heloise · · * OUR SPECIAL MAILMAN Heloise's mail paid my salary last year... now if she would like to work on my chiropractor's bill... * * * He's really a nut, foks, but beautiful... Heloise * * * . Dear Heloise: ^ Here is a hint for opening jars... Don't sprain your wrist -- just take your ice pick and punch a little hole in the lid. As the vacuum escapes, Ihe lid will come off that pickle jar like magic... Trudy Dettle sheath, tp degenerate. When Ihese defects occur Ihe function related to thai nerve is imp a i r e d . T h i s c a n m e a n p r o b l e m s i n m o v e m e n t , paralysis, visual disturbances, or any variety of symptoms capable of being produced by i n v o l v e m e n t of the n e r v e system. If only a few fibers are affeoled. llie defect may nol be very great. A common characteristic of M.S. i s i h e w i d e s p r e a d , scattered involvement. With brain tumor you can usually r e l a t e the s y m p t o m s to a special part of the brain. The same is true wilh other nerve diseases. Hut M.S. may cause symptoms Ihat indicate a patchy involvement of the brain and spinal cord. Another characteristic of M.S. is ils tendency lo cause sudden attacks, ihen clear up 'and.disappear for long periods of lime Curiously M.S. is more common in the northern areas, or colder areas, than llie warmer areas. Il is six limes as common in the northern United Slates and Europe than in Ihe south. One theory is (hat il resembles polio in this regard. Polio caused more paralysis in Ihe Norlh than in the South because polio was much more c o m m o n i n w a r m t e m p e r a t u r e s . T h e v i r u s affected people early in life and conferred an immunity against Ihe paralyzing-type (hat occurred in Ihe Norlh. There isn'l much I can lell you to do for yourself, except follow good general health measures and avoid excessive fatigue. The course of ihe condition varies enormously. Il usually takes a while for the doctor lo observe the progress to say a n y t h i n g u s e f u l about a n y patient's outlook wilh M.S. You will be interested lo k n o w , h o w e v e r , lhal some patients live more than 50 years after (he first attack. By five years after the first attack 70 per cent arc still capable o[ employment. By 10 years 50 per cent are still employable with intermitlenl interruptions. By 20 years after the first atlack 35 per cenl arc still capable of employment. Considering Ihe v a r i a b i l i t y of Ihe age M.S. starts, these figures are not bad. So. you had best plan on being around for a while and being part of the aclive scene. "Bring me a hot fudge sundae -- I just learned that the health club I joined has declared bankruptcy!"
