Answer

No specific dietary therapy is necessary for patients with MAS.

In general, patients should be encouraged to maintain a high degree of physical activity and a regular exercise program. Activity need not be limited unless the patient has PFD located at critical sites in the skeleton. Because this process can weaken bone, the presence of a lesion in a weight-bearing bone can increase the risk of a pathologic fracture and thus potentially warrant some restriction of activity. Patients may be advised, on an individual basis, to avoid certain contact sports, games, and pastimes associated with fracture risk.
