myeline sheath repair

Postby Rolo Beorn » Jul 02 2016 6:06 pm

=>I have spinocerebellar ataxia type 7. Many of my symptoms can be linked to myeline degeneration.
-blurred double vision
-ataxia
-dysarthria
-incoordination
-slowed nerve impulses

*Vit. D receptors stimulate oligodendrocytes to create myeline which could restore myeline-damage.
In order to increase activation of vit. D receptors, which vit. D can I take as supplement?

*When myeline is destroyed, scar tissue forms, doesn't that prevent most myeline repair?
And what creates this scar tissue?
Shouldn't apoptosis keep it clean?

*Myeline is basically the protective cover which surrounds axons. When Myeline is destroyed, isn't the axon destroyed as well?
I read that axons in the central nervous system can't regenerate...the ones in the peripheral nervous system can.

*Schwann cells deliver myeline in the peripheral nervous system. Is there a way to stimulate Schwann cells?

thanks.

I read that a glial scar is formed during injury in the CNS.
The glial scar causes both physical and chemical a bad environment for axonal regeneration.
Is a glial scar formed in a slow degeneration?

you can promote myelin sheath health by eating healthy foods and including plenty of omega fatty acids in your diet.
