A study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry has found that patients with multiple sclerosis who have food allergies had more relapses and a higher likelihood of gadolinium-enhancing lesions than patients with no known allergy.
They assessed more than 1,300 adults with clinical MS and MRI-confirmed disease activity who had a self-reported history of allergic conditions.
The authors of the study suggest this could “lead to new therapeutic and preventative strategies for MS.” In the meantime, they recommend that clinicians counsel their MS patients who have food allergies on preventing or reducing exposures to offending foods.
I couldn’t agree more!
And may I add: What took you so long to figure this out?
If you have MS, you don’t need to wait for your doctor to get up-to-speed!
A recent study showed that medical doctors don’t receive enough training on nutrition and diet in medical school to begin with, so it’s unlikely that they are even aware of the major role that I find diet plays in the progression of MS.
