In this leaflet, Dr Charles Shepherd (Hon. Medical Adviser to the ME Association) reviews the importance of nutrition especially in people severely and very severely affected by M.E.
He discusses malnutrition and the dangers of restrictive diets, the effect malnutrition can have on physical symptoms and mental health, and the importance of obtaining a nutritional assessment – something he has raised with the NICE guideline committee.
The ME Association telephone helpline – ME Connect – is available every day of the year, during the hours of 10am-12noon, 2pm-4pm and 7pm-9pm. Please phone: 0344 576 5326 if you have any questions or would simply like to talk to someone who is there to listen.
