Multiple Sclerosis Statistics

Multiple Sclerosis numbers are growing across the US. 

In 1996 less than a hundred fifty thousand people had the disease, today more than three hundred fifty thousand people have been diagnosed.

That boils down to one in every 700 Americans, according to experts.

While the disease is manageable with medication, there is no cure. Though doctors have determined symptoms begin to occur after the age of 15 and before 60.
