Description: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neurologic illness where the cause remains unknown. While approved disease modifying therapies are the mainstay of MS management, there can be many side effects of the drugs that limit their use. In part due to these factors, there is a huge interest amongst the people with MS to try dietary approaches or non-pharmacological agents to help MS. Most of the time the people with MS do not discuss these options with their MS providers and additionally MS providers are not enough knowledgeable about potential role or side effects of these approaches in MS management. The scientific evidence supporting the use of dietary approaches or supplement intake is evolving and there is a significant need to educate both health care providers as well people with MS to make better management choices for the MS care. This talk will give an update of research in common dietary approaches and supplement use in MS.
