Form of MS

Relapsing remitting MS

Brief Summary

The aim of this research is to create pilot data to allow researchers to look at the relationship between disease progression in adults with MS, and their food intakes. The study will use objective measures of disease outcomes, specifically high resolution MRI images obtained on a consistent quality scanner. This data will be compared to high quality food intake data to allow for potential associations between disease progress and dietary intake to be explored. To assist in achieving this research aim, volunteers will be asked to participate in a 6-month study involving two MRI brain scans; one at the start of the study and one 6 months later. At both time points, participants will also answer questions about their food intake and potential MS progression.
