[The role of diet in multiple sclerosis].Pol Merkur Lekarski 2017; 42(247):46-50PM
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. The aim of this study was to present the relationship between nutrition and the occurrence and course of the disease. The work on the basis of the literature demonstrated the adverse effect of high intake of saturated fatty acids and salt on the development and course of multiple sclerosis. Also in the paper we demonstrat a correlation between favorable adequate supply of omega-3, vitamin D, B12 and folic acid and the risk of exacerbation and symptoms of MS. The results of studies on the effect of dietary factors on the development and course of MS is not clear, which is why it is necessary to their continuation.
