Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery. 2015 Jan; 152(1): 42-47.

Aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) is comprised of aspirin/acetyl-salicylic acid (ASA) sensitivity, bronchial asthma, and nasal polyposis.  Treatment may include steroids, surgery, and/or aspirin desensitization.

In this study of 10 patients, a regular diet was compared to a low-salicylate diet for 6 weeks each.  Objective tests, as well as questionnaires, showed that they did much bettere on the low-salicylate diet.

QUOTE:  “Results of the pilot study indicate that implementation of a low salicylate diet improves the nasal symptoms and nasal endoscopy findings of individuals with AERD.”
