What diet?

Post by RightWill » Sun Aug 26, 2018 6:38 pm

Not diagnosed but seeing doc in a month. Something like MS going on and I had two MRI with lesions showing in the past. The vision and numbness symptoms are getting worse. I really don't follow and diet at all.

Should I start? If so where should I look to find a good diet?

Thanks
Rick

Welcome to TIMS. Being proactive is definitely a good thing. I started 'treating' myself prior to getting a diagnosis. Good health in every way, not just diet, cannot be bad.

One thing about diet is that there is no consensus on what foods are the healthiest and what works the best, but there are many, many theories and many, many diets. Do some research and then pick one you think is best.

Along with diet, consider other key areas that can impact your health, such as exercise, supplements, elimination of known 'bad' foods, elimination of all stress and plenty of sleep to name a few.

in whatever way(s) that your previous status quo has deviated from public health recommendations, including published recommendations for your daily intakes of various essential nutrients, make the needed corrections. the established ms diets (which are discussed in the 'diet' forum) reflect an array of corrections for their various authors' pre-dx dietary extremes.
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
