$1 million grant to compare Swank and Wahls diets for MS
« on: October 20, 2016, 09:13:55 am »
There are several different diets that have been put forward as beneficial to MS, and each one has its loyal advocates. The Swank diet and the Terry Wahls diet are among those most often mentioned. The National MS Society has awarded a grant of $1 million for a comparison study of these two diets:

From PubMed, June 6, 2018.  This abstract of an article  by several authors, including Dr. Terry Wahls and someone affiliated with the National MS Society, may refer to the study mentioned in this thread.  Since the clinical trial was registered nearly two years ago, this study may already have been completed but the results aren't discussed in the abstract, which is entitled "Dietary approaches to treat MS-related fatigue comparing the modified Paleolithic (Wahls Elimination) and low-saturated fat (Swank) diets on perceived fatigue in persons with RRMS: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial."
