Fibromyalgia & low carb diet

Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a syndrome characterised by chronic, widespread muscular pain.  It feels rather like having arthritis in the muscles.  If you're fibromyalgic, you wake up in the morning stiff and sore all over, often feeling worse than when you went to bed.

There is no known cure for fibromyalgia (although treatment can help) and there is some debate over its causes.  It seems quite likely that fibromyalgia may be caused by a combination of a variety of factors, such as injury, immune problems, genetics, etc.

It follows then, that no one fibromyalgia treatment will help everyone.  But many fibromyalgia experts (eg Dr Paul St Amand, Dr Devin Starlanyl, Miryam Ehrlich Williamson) believe that a majority of fibromyalgics are hypoglycemic, and will benefit from a low carbohydrate diet - see their books, listed on the right of this page.

 For more information on fibromyalgia see Pain Busters Clinic - they specialise in the treatment of fibromyalgia, and recommend a low carb diet to their fibromyalgia patients.
