WEST PALM BEACH, FL — At the ACTRIMS Forum on Saturday, February 29, Ellen Mowry, MD, MCR, addressed the big elephant in the room: are there any dietary modifications that can alter the disease course in multiple sclerosis (MS)? Dr. Mowry's presentation was the final talk to wrap up the 3-day scientific program packed with cutting-edge research in MS, much of it focusing on mechanisms of secondary progressive pathology. "When I first started looking into this, there were about 13 million hits on Google for MS and diet," she said. "Each of the top three hits claimed to know exactly the right diet for people living with MS. But they were all different."
