    I have a lady friend with MS and we are always on the lookout for help. She is my wife's bf from childhood, now living in central Ohio. Centerburg in fact🙂

    I am currently taking quite high dosage Vit D tablets (with calcium) and have done for years but only because I seem to be unusually prone to Vit D deficiency and I used to get pain in my bones when I didn't take extra amounts.
    Perhaps by doing this, I have been inadvertently protecting myself from such conditions such as senile dementia as I get older? I have heard evidence that dementia is also an autoimmune disease so maybe taking extra Dit D would also help to protect from that.

    I am 49 although I actually look more like I am ~35-ish or even younger and many people have told me this -a characteristic that runs on my father side of the family which have a family history of longevity which I am extremely glad I appear to show signs of haven inherited! Unfortunately, almost the opposite is true for may mother's side with histories of early death from cancers and other horrible diseases so I keep hoping I haven't inherited too much from my mother's side!

    Well I must say I have lived a full life and it is not over, still working full time in a scientific field, age 72, not taking any meds, blood pressure normal, tending to hypoglycemia, that's about it.
