Answer

No special diet is required for the treatment of brucellosis. Discuss with patients the importance of consuming pasteurized milk and milk products and avoiding other possible sources of infection. Obviously, the impact of such education will have the greatest effect on family and friends who may be at risk for infection.

Restriction of activity with bed rest appears to confer benefit in the acute phase of brucellosis, increasing the rate of recovery.
