The aim of this pilot study was to examine lipid and cholesterol biomarker profile changes after a diet-based multimodal intervention was implemented, to assess the association between lipid profiles and fatigue in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis. Analysis of safety, adherence, and nutritional adequacy was also completed. Data from a phase 1 pilot trial of an integrative 12-month diet-based multimodal intervention was obtained via subanalysis. The diet was a modified Paleolithic diet with recommended foods that included leafy green vegetables and deeply coloured fruits and vegetables.  Read on.
