Figure 1: An illustrative relationship between dietary intake and neurological diseases. Neurological diseases such as epilepsy, Alzheimer, Parkinson, multiple sclerosis, and stroke can activate important catabolic pathways that result in undernutrition. In this context, a reduction of nutrients is harmful, might not show protective effects, and must be excluded from the non-pharmacological strategy. However, patients with unaltered nutritional conditions can undergo this approach, being a useful strategy for applying together with the current pharmacological interventions for such diseases.
