  • This will be my second time with high cholesterol ...

    This will be my second time with high cholesterol and triglycerides (I am 46), but my first time since I've been on tecfidera. I have on tecfidera for almost two years because of the last drug caused me to have high cholesterol and triglycerides. Since I've been on tecfidera I have been walking on the treadmill and on a diet. Needless to say I was very disappointed when my endocrinologist called to tell me my results. She was about ready to release me from her after observing me for one year. Right now I am on Fenofibrate. I am hoping to connect with others to see how you are dealing with this issue and what steps you are taking to keep this under control. Thanks!

  • Tooth loss due to Tecfidera

    I belong to a world wide support group of people who take Tecfidera. Thr sibjectbof tooth loss is quite common.I have lost 8 teeth and and cannot replace them to the amount of money that Social Security Disability gives you to live on(which in the USA, is below the poverty line). Biogen still has not listed it as side effect. I would like to hear from others that have lost teeth while taking Tecfidera. Maybe we can start a class action suit.

    I have lost eight teeth since starting Tecfidera. I belong to an online support group that is world wide and the topic of lost teeth is quite common. Biogen still does not list it as a side effect but it seems to be quite prevelant. Please call the FDA and Biogen and report your teeth loss. Force Biogen to list it as a side effect because most of us cannot afford to replace our teeth on Social Security Disability payments.

  • Tecfidera and ketonuria

    Hi. I have a high level of ketonuria and I am wondering what the implications of this are. Is it harming me at all? I don't have diabetes.

    I've had two blood tests since starting Tecfidera. Both show normal glucose but elevated ketones - both times they reflect 2.0 which is high. I'm not dieting though since starting Tecfidera I'm not as hungry and I've lost about 20 pounds. I'm still eating crap, mostly carbs, but less of them.

    Is everyone else finding the same thing?
