THAT’S NOT FAIR – In Multiple Sclerosis, women suffer more often from anxiety than men – But why?

Not only that multiple sclerosis is 2.5 times more frequent in females than males. Females with Multiple Sclerosis suffer more often from anxiety, too. This gender effect was discovered by researchers in Toronto, Canada. The study included 896 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The results showed that in multiple sclerosis anxiety is related to female gender. However, in depression that’s not the case. Depression effects males and females with MS in the same frequency. Future research has to show why this is the case.
