Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis Prevention
While no scientific studies have been performed on the prevention of DISH, patients with obesity and diabetes are at increased risk of DISH. Therefore, maintaining a healthy weight and a healthy diet high in vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and fruits, and low in added sweeteners, logically should decrease the risk of DISH, as well as a variety of other medical conditions.
