People with GBS need to have a high protein diet that builds up their muscles again. They will also need to build up their immunity with the correct vitamin supplements. The body needs vitamin B for healthy nerves.

I was never told about any special diet. I was not a diabetic so I did not have any restrictions.

No I'm not aware of a diet that would improve Guillain-Barre - while in hospital I was feed anything they had on the menu that day, no restrictions. In general a healthy diet is good for anyone.

I ate pretty healthy before GBS and I continue to eat the same way. Lots of fruit, veggies, lean protien, etc.

Posted Apr 27, 2017 by Gabrielle 600
it again depends on severity of GBS as to diet weather able to eat ao are fed through a feeding tube? The diet shoul be foods that the person is used to eating and give sufficient proper vitamins, protiens and digestible if able to chew their food, eggs,vegetable, fruit and a normal proper diet prepare by a qualified diatition while in hospital. possibly vit. b12 may be of help??

I did not have a certain diet. Normal balanced meals.

Eating fruits and vegetables along with lean protein. Vitamin B also helps. Less sugar

I was not told of anything or i also have not read anything about a specific diet

a diet based in proteins to help building your muscles again.

I've explored, but am unaware of any nutrition or supplements that truly accelerate recovery from GBS. There may be a benefit from taking Omega 3 fatty acids & certain B-vitamins (B6 & B12, I think), though I don't know that the efficacy of those supplements has been proven. My answer may be outdated by new research, breakthroughs may reveal new diet strategies to improved GBS recovery or symptom management. Internet research is your friend.

Basically a decent healthy well balanced diet is all you need. Stay away from high fat, high sodium, and high carbohydrates.

Due to the fact that I am unable to exercise as usual I try to keep on a lower fat diet.

Any autoimmune protocol regime is said to be good

Eating anything is a challenge. I’d say eat what is palatable while you can. Many people wind up tube fed

Do you think a diet improves Guillain-Barre Syndrome?

Yes and health in general.

Is there any food that should be avoided when diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome?

Processed foods and junk food, also, maybe foods that are not good for people with inflammation.

I don’t know if one diet is better than the others. I know that I have cut down on my carbs and sweets to lose weight to make it easier for me to get out of my wheelchair and walk.

I am not familiar with a diet that helps or hinders GBS.
Certain functions could be affected more like bowel movements but other than that I believe you can eat a regular diet

No, the sugar only negatively affects the nerves and should be measured

There is no special diet after a GBS. It is necessary to eat healthy & balanced. Preferred proteins for building muscle.
