So every patient asks me about food and diet, and they are looking for a cure that will be provided by their diet and unfortunately we are not there. However, a number of us unhealthy food habits and the standard sort of healthy diet would help. Vitamin D supplementation is good, some multi-vitamins are good, certain B vitamins are important to take, but also in-addition I think low sugar diet if you're gluten sensitive or gluten free diet certainly help some patients and also in-addition I think a low fat diet is generally considered beneficial in that mess, and some patients have a very good response to this type of treatment other patients have a less favorable response and I always tell the patients to try a specific diet, stick to it strictly for six weeks and see how you feel.
