For experimental animals, calorie restriction, as well as deficits of specific nutrients, can retard the establishment and progression of autoimmune disease. The clinical value of imposed nutritional deficiencies in the treatment of autoimmune disease, however, is suspect. In contrast, diet supplementation of specific fatty acids may prove to be of value in the management of some autoimmune disorders.
