As mentioned in the “Ask Eve” introduction last month, sadly there is no magic-bullet diet that will alleviate MS symptoms, so there is currently no such thing as an “MS Diet.” Because MS medicines and therapies are often ineffective and hard on the body, those of us living with MS naturally search for other areas, such as diet, that might bring us relief. But for decades, scientists have tried to identify a diet that would benefit people living with MS, with inconclusive results.
Does this mean that your diet doesn’t matter and you should eat whatever you want? Absolutely not. Individuals living with MS still need to follow the dietary recommendations that have been proven to benefit everyone. A key area to address is your saturated fat intake.
