Sodium intake is associated with increased disease activity in multiple sclerosis




9 Set 2014

Recently, salt has been shown to modulate the differentiation of human and mouse Th17 cells and mice that were fed a high-sodium diet were described to develop more aggressive courses of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. However, the role of sodium intake in multiple sclerosis (MS) has not been addressed. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between salt consumption and clinical and radiological disease activity in MS.
