Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) Support Group

Advice for a new member?

Hi all,

@Savitri joined us recently, after her mother experienced severe symptoms and got diagnosed with ADEM. She was discharged after requiring hospitalization and five plasma exchanges. @Savitri is looking for advice as she seems to not have received any from the hospital. She is concerned as her mother may have thyroid issues in addition to being overweight.

Would love to hear from any of you who may be of help!

Thank you,

Was / is she on any steroids? I know many medications cause water retention and persistent stress hormone.

Thanks for the help, Grim: good question! Only @Savitri knows the answer to that. By tagging her, she should receive an email notification that we’re discussing a question she asked.

Savitri, are you there? Click on “Visit Topic” in the email and you should be transported straight here. (Depending on how your computer is set up, you may have to log in first.) Hope you drop in and join in the conversation!
