The Ideal Diet for CIDP
Many of our diseases stem from, or exacerbated by the kinds of diets we have. Here we will briefly outline the ideal diet for CIDP – what foods you should include in your diet and what you should avoid.
Foods to Avoid
Saturated fat and trans fats may increase pro-inflammatory markers, especially in people who are overweight or who have diabetes. Foods that are high in these types of unhealthy fat include red meat, butter, cheese and ice cream. In addition, most processed foods, including fast foods, frozen foods and soups, are made with synthetic trans fat. Sugar and refined carbohydrates may also increase inflammation responses in some people. In general, eating a high-calorie diet can contribute to chronic inflammation.
Notet hat caffein also brings about inflammation, so if you are a coffee drinker, you may be to reconsider it.
Foods to Include
Include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet for their natural anti-inflammatory properties. These types of food are a good source of antioxidants, which can limit the free radical damage in your body. Fruits and vegetables are high in various vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin D, which has known anti-inflammatory properties. Include essential fats in your diet that are high in omega-3 fatty acids. Certain fatty fish, such as tuna and salmon, are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids. You can also take a fish oil supplement.
Spices also help. Consider taking in some turmeric daily to help with inflammation in your body. Moderation is also best. Fish oil supplements can be helpful, but taking too much can be detrimental to your health.
