Can cerebral atrophy be cured with medicines?
kindly read ahead
Thanks for posting in HCM.
Senile atrophy means reduction in the cerebral part of brain due to increased age. Its a normal phenomenon that occurs as person goes beyond age of 60 commonly but can be seen any time after 50yrs of age.
Senile means old age. So there is no way it could be treated or prevented.
The effects of these will be dementia, behavioral changes, seizures (rare).
Usually it takes very long time for these effects to see. Some might exhibit them, some might not.
There is no treatment for that as I mentioned before but there are ways you can try to slow down the progression.
If she is diabetic or hypertensive then good control of both can slow down the progression.
Some studies have shown that diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids are also brain protective and can help in the same. You can get capsules containing omega 3 FA in pharmacy.
Good brain stimulating work or engaging in brain using activities can help keep the brain active and reduce the effects of cerebral atrophy.
I hope I have answered your query well.
If you have any questions kindly ask me back.
