Multiple Sclerosis


  1. Two people I know just got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Could thre be any validity between MS and one's diet? Answer


I know this sounds a little far-fetched, but I have a good reason for asking. Two people I know just simultaneously got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. One was a long-time vegetarian and the other a recovering anorexic. So... Could there be any validity to a correlation between MS and one's diet?

At this time, many people with multiple sclerosis have a vitamin D deficiency so researchers are looking at a connection. Certainly, it is more beneficial to eat a balanced diet (adequate protein, vitamins and minerals) within the current dietary guidelines which limit fat, cholesterol and sodium with sufficient dietary fiber.
