Breastfeeding May Reduce Multiple Sclerosis Relapses

MedicalResearch.com Interview with:
PD Dr. Kerstin Hellwig
Neurologische Abteilung Universitätsklinikum
St. Josef Hospital
Bochum


Medical Research: What is the background for this study? What are the main findings?


Dr. Hellwig: The relapse risk is elevated in women with Multiple Sclerosis after delivery. We found that women with Multiple Sclerosis who breastfed exclusively had a significant lower relapse risk, than women who did not breastfed at all or breastfed some

but not exclusively. After the introduction of supplemental feedings,
the relase risk was similar between both groups.

Medical Research: What should clinicians and patients take away from your report?


Dr. Hellwig: Our findings indicate that most women with Multiple Sclerosis should be supported if  they choose to breastfeed exclusively since it clearly does not increase

the risk of postpartum relapse.

Medical Research: What recommendations do you have for future research as a result of this study?


Dr. Hellwig: It will be interesting to investigate how this applies to women with high disease activity.
