Nutrition & MS

Hi, my name is Alex and I have been living with Multiple Sclerosis since 1986.

I have created and run a website http://www.ms-multiple-sclerosis-symptoms.com with the goal of providing useful and good information to other newly diagnosed and old timer MSers like myself.

I am looking for information on nutritional guidelines that could be of great benefit to folks living with MS and information on foods that would help us fight ms fatigue.

Any and all information you can point me too would be greatly appreciated

Best regards and be well,

Alex Bermúdez M.

It is recommended that people with MS consume a low-fat/ high fiber diet as the same as the general public. There have been 'diets' that claim to help MS, however, they have not been under strict controlled studies for effectiveness. Generally a healthy diet is recommending lowering your sugar and sodium consummation with a low fat/ high fiber intake. Low fat diet translates into a use of polyunsaturated (omega 3, corn oil, nuts, etc) fats and monounsaturated (olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, etc) fats, no saturated fats and no Trans fats. Eat low fat meats (chicken, fish, loin of pork) or non-meat sources (soy products, nuts), low fat vegetarian combinations (rice & beans, pasta & beans, low fat cheese & pasta), fat free or low fat dairy products (skim milk, 1% milk, low fat cheese, low fat yogurts, low fat soy milk/yogurt), use plant oils, non trans-fat margarines, and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Eat daily high fiber breads and cereals (oatmeal). Some people have claimed that avoiding dairy and gluten in their diet has helped them with their MS; however, there is no clear research evidence. It is a personal choice. Hoped this has helped you.
