Answer

Patients with fibromyalgia are generally interested in diet and are influenced heavily by information that promotes complementary and alternative approaches to this disorder; therefore, promote sound general nutrition, appropriate vitamin supplementation, bone health, and weight reduction, if needed. [158, 159]

Physicians must acquaint themselves with the available research on diet and metabolism. Investigate the trend diets and make informed recommendations to each patient on an individual basis. Help patients set attainable goals for dietary modification.
