Thank you for posting your query.
Normal pressure hydrocephalus
(NPH) is a condition, that can be treated with surgery, called as shunt surgery. In this condition, the brain water (CSF) needs to be diverted, to reduce the pressure in the brain.
This leads to improvement in the patient's problems. Walking and gait improves the most. Other problems such as dementia
and urinary incontinence
improve only a little.
There is no role for any specific diet in treating NPH.
