I am not aware that SOD being life threatening.  

There is no specific diet that I know of that can help with symptoms associated with SOD.  

Academic medical centers are affiliated with medical schools.  Finding the nearest medical school would be a reasonable first step.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
