By J Trabal, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • June 27, 2012


Objectives: To assess the dietary habits and food avoidance-behavior in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

Methods: Cross-sectional pilot study with 28 patients diagnosed with severe CFS. Eating habits were assessed with a food frequency questionnaire and 3-day food records. We analyzed variables related to dietary restrictions induced by symptoms or external information.

Results:

• The most prevalent restrictions were for dairy products and gluten-containing grains, with 22 and 15 restricting patients, respectively.

• Patients reported different digestive symptoms, which did not improve with the use of exclusion diets.

• 13 patients had received information against the intake of certain foods through different sources.

• 6 cases of grains restriction and 11 of dairy were compatible with a counseling-induced pattern of exclusion.

Conclusions:

There is not a homogeneous pattern of food avoidance.

Dietary restrictions should be based on a proven food allergy or intolerance.

Dietary counseling should be based on sound nutritional knowledge.
