Raw data of the paper "Higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet is associated with reduced tics and obsessive-compulsive symptoms: A series of nine boys with Obsessive-Compulsive Tic Disorder", which was published by the Journal of Nutrition Clinique et Métabolisme in 2019. We presented a series of 9 boys with OCTD from Italy whose unhealthy food habits were corrected through nutritional counseling. The education focused on promoting a balanced diet through non-specific Mediterranean dietary advices. After one month, YGTSS (Yale Global Tic Severity Scale) and Y-BOCS (Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale) scored a significant reduction, but the quality of life diminished.
