PROVIDER TOOLKIT INTRODUCTION
The information in this “Provider Toolkit” is designed to supplement your current knowledge on MS. We have included basic information on symptoms, diagnosis and treatment; information on MS challenges and epidemiology; additional reading; and links to MS and neurological societies.

MS affects roughly 2.5 million adults worldwide and 400,000 in the US.
The treatment goals of disease-modifying therapy for MS are multi-fold.
MS is often undiagnosed; the CDC does not require physicians to report new cases, and the symptoms of the disease can go unrecognized for some time.
At this time, there is no single diagnostic test that confirms multiple sclerosis.
