Effects of Nutritional Interventions in the Control of Musculoskeletal Pain: An Integrative Review. Food consumption has significant positive effects on an individual’s health status, including the reduction of symptoms associated with musculoskeletal pain.
However, specific food groups indicated for the treatment of pain are not yet determined. Nutritional Interventions in the Management of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. Fibromyalgia (FM) is a multifactorial syndrome of unknown etiology, characterized by widespread chronic pain and various somatic and psychological manifestations.
The management of FM requires a multidisciplinary approach combining both pharmacological and nonpharmacological strategies. Among nonpharmacological strategies, growing evidence suggests a potential beneficial role for nutrition. Dietary Patterns and Interventions to Alleviate Chronic Pain. Pain is one of the main problems for modern society and medicine, being the most common symptom described by almost all patients.
When pain becomes chronic, the life of the patients is dramatically affected, being associated with significant emotional distress and/or functional disability. A complex biopsychosocial evaluation is necessary to better understand chronic pain, where good results can be obtained through interconnected biological, psychological, and social factors. The aim of this study was to find the most relevant articles existent in the PubMed database, one of the most comprehensive databases for medical literature, comprising dietary patterns to alleviate chronic pain. Through a combined search using the keywords “chronic pain” and “diet” limited to the last 10 years we obtained 272 results containing the types of diets used for chronic pain published in the PubMed database. ►▼ Show Figures.
Food in Chronic Pain: Friend or Foe? Dietary Interventions in the Management of Fibromyalgia: A Systematic Review and Best-Evidence Synthesis. Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is characterised by chronic widespread pain alongside fatigue, poor sleep quality and numerous comorbidities.
It is estimated to have a worldwide prevalence of 1.78%, with a predominance in females. Treatment interventions for fibromyalgia have limited success, leading to many patients seeking alternative forms of treatment, including modifications to their diet and lifestyle. The effectiveness of dietary changes in fibromyalgia has not been widely researched or evaluated. This systematic review identified twenty-two studies, including 18 randomised control trials (RCTs) and four cohort studies which were eligible for inclusion.
In total these studies investigated 17 different nutritional interventions. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1 This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Potential Protective Mechanisms of Ketone Bodies in Migraine Prevention. 1.
Introduction Migraine is a complex, common and debilitating neurological disorder . Its episodic form is characterized by recurrent moderate to severe, typically throbbing and unilateral headache attacks that last between 4–72 h, which are aggravated by any kind of physical activity and accompanied by either photo-, phono-, or osmophobia, nausea, or a combination of these. Migraine affects approximately 17% of women and 8% of men in Europe , and with a peak incidence during the most productive years of life, migraine not only causes a huge amount of suffering, but also inflicts a substantial number of costs on society: approximately €18.5 billion per year in Europe alone [3,4].
Current migraine treatment options have limited efficacy and many—often intolerable—side-effects [5,6], with the potential exception of the very recent addition of monoclonal Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) antibodies .

Dietary interventions in Fibromyalgia: a systematic review: Annals of Medicine: Vol 0, No ja. Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic non-degenerative disease, whose nutritional therapy seems controversial.
This systematic review aimed to synthesize the knowledge about the effect of dietary interventions on patient reported outcomes (PRO) and inflammation in patients with FM. Six electronic databases – PubMed, BioMed Central, Cochrane library, EMBASE, LILACS and ISI – were searched for clinical trials, in which a dietary intervention in patients with FM diagnosed was conducted. Quality of evidence assessment was measured in accordance to GRADE methodology. Seven clinical trials – 3 randomized controlled trials, 1 unrandomized clinical trial and 3 uncontrolled clinical trials, were identified. Dietary approaches included gluten-free diet (n = 1), raw vegetarian diet (n = 2), low Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Monossacharides, Alcohols and Polyols (FODMAPs) diet (n = 1), hypocaloric diet (n = 2) and monosodium glutamate- and aspartame-free diet interventions (n = 1).
