Abstract

in English, Spanish

INTRODUCTION:

The type of diet has been related with the inflammatory process that forms part of multiple sclerosis. In recent years, different lines of research have generated a large body of knowledge about the role played by diet in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis.

AIM:

To conduct a critical examination of the evidence suggesting the existence of a relationship between different types of diets and foods and multiple sclerosis.

DEVELOPMENT:

The work includes an update of the most significant studies that have analysed the role played by diet in the pathogenesis and treatment of multiple sclerosis. In order to explore the association between diet and the risk of multiple sclerosis, the authors examined the currently available evidence, which ranged from observation-based studies to intervention studies.

CONCLUSIONS:

Further research on nutrition as a risk factor is needed, as it could be related with the disease and controlling it could lead to a significant reduction in the incidence or progression of the disease.
