Diets and fatty-acid supplements may affect MS by interacting with the immune system. Conventional medications for MS (Copaxone, Avonex, Betaseron, Rebif, Novantrone, Tysabri) also interact with the immune system. It is not known whether combining one of these conventional medications with a dietary approach would be beneficial. Because we have a limited understanding of the regulation of the immune system, it is conceivable, although unlikely, that a combination could be harmful. If a single approach is chosen, far more convincing evidence exists for one of the conventional medications than for a dietary approach.
