results excerpt from abstract. i reordered the sentences, so not purely verbatim:

Ramsaransing, G. S., Mellema, S. A., & De Keyser, J. (2009). Dietary patterns in clinical subtypes of multiple sclerosis: an exploratory study. Nutrition journal, 8(1), 36.

"Compared to the daily recommended allowance, the MS patients had a lower than recommended intake of folic acid, magnesium, zinc and selenium.

Compared to the other MS groups, the secondary progressive MS patients had a lower intake of magnesium, calcium and iron.

The total group of MS patients had, compared to the Dutch population, a lower intake of folate, magnesium and copper and a lower energy intake."
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns

deficits occur in 'normal' range
