Hello everyone I am a new member. A MRI confirmed a diagnosis of white matter disease.

I am a nurse but never heard of this before.
Are there any cognitive changes I should look for.
Is there anything to slow the progression of the disease?
I am 63. I don't understand the best way to manage this disease

Hi Curious2,

Welcome!

As a nurse you may be concerned about whether white matter disease means MS since MS is a disease of the white matter.. You might want to ask your doctor--though often as we get older, white matter disease that is age-related (but not MS) sets in.

Here is what WebMD has to say about it:

White Matter Disease: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment

And this is from Medical News Today:

White matter disease: Prognosis, symptoms, and treatment

Thanks for the links. Both articles were informative.
Still a bit confusing as there is no particular treatment. Seems to be more lifestyle changes.
