Swallowing and Nutrition

In advanced MS, there is often weight loss or very poor dietary intake. These problems can be attributed to swallowing problems, depression, fatigue, side effects of medications, shaking/tremors, and/or cognitive changes. It is not uncommon for individuals to become dehydrated along with consuming too few calories. People with MS can become dehydrated very quickly.

This section addresses nutrition and eating. Even when MS causes swallowing problems, there may be ways to derive pleasure from eating.
