Do Active MS legions correlate with active symptoms, meaning the more lesions the more symptomatic a person with MS is?
Complex: I presume you refer to Gadolinium positive T-1 lesions which are indeed acute. The MRI always demonstrates far more lesions than a patient will exhibit relapses, but the more lesions, the higher burden of disease and higher likelihood of brain atrophy and disability.

Recent research on bisphenol-a and development of prolactinoma in young men? Are more young men showing up with prolactinomas these days?
Not in my practice.: Bpa acts as a weak estrogen and it is known that estrogen increases prolactinomas. Prolactinomas are a fairly common endocrine disease, but there is currently no real evidence that there is an increased incidence of the disease.

Common: Too much thyroid hormone can produce bone loss & heart irregularities. However, most patients who are low in thyroid are underrecognized.
