Hi Chitra.... More than medicine, what your mom needs is good support from you and the family.  Dementia is a progressive disorder.  Unfortunately there is no definitive treatment for it except multivitamins and others.  Make her feel that you care for her.    You can  take usefull tips from physiatrist and other rehabilitation professionals initially.  When you learn to be positive with her over a period of time you will learn how to deal with her and her problems.  Hope for the best....

Can HCG cause tumors on your liver? I went on the HCG diet for 43 days FEB. 2010. Went in for a ct scan for something unrelated and they found a growth on my liver. The size of a large orange. The doctor does feel that it has been there for a long time. Just wondering if the HCG could have made it bigger. I am getting a MRI next week. Hopefully it is not cancerous.
