Does diet affect multiple sclerosis?

Question Date: 8/28/2012

Answer: Although diet is not currently considered a causative factor in MS, anecdotal evidence abounds from individuals with MS who have experienced health benefits by changing their diet. Eating consistently well over a period of time may help reduce fatigue, improve bladder and bowel problems, increase energy, and prevent bone loss. It may also positively impact mental and emotional health, including memory and concentration. To learn more, request a copy of Nutrition & MS by calling 1-888-MSFOCUS (673-6287).
