An overview of the current state of evidence for the role of specific diets in multiple sclerosis (2019)
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... 4819303736

"Highlights
•Many people are interested in using dietary manipulations to manage their MS.
•Many diets have been explored in MS and its animal models.
•Insufficient evidence exists to recommend any specific diet for people with MS.
...
Conclusion
There is insufficient evidence to recommend the routine use of any specific diet by people with MS. Some diets touted for MS may have potential negative health consequences. It is important that clinicians inquire regarding dietary manipulations, so they can educate patients on any known efficacy data and potential adverse effects of individual diets. Consultation with a registered dietician is recommended for patients undertaking restrictive diets."

no doubt. as might terry wahls and a litany of others

patients and caregivers have certainly found and later shared individualized dietary routes from their own pre dx status quo, towards existing public health recommendations post dx.

Diet and Multiple Sclerosis: Scoping Review of Web-Based Recommendations (2019)
https://www.i-jmr.org/2019/1/e10050

"...There is a wide variety of Web-based dietary advice, which in some cases is contradictory. In most cases, this advice is the result of peoples’ individual experiences and has not been scientifically tested. How people living with MS use this information is not known. These findings highlight the important role health professionals can play in assisting people living with MS in their health information-seeking behaviors."
