Is there hope that cognitive symptoms can improve in Alzheimer’s disease with dietary intervention?

Psychiatrist Dr. Georgia Ede comments on a recent study investigating whether a keto diet can have a positive effect on cognitive symptoms. Her conclusion? That the results are quite promising:

Alzheimer’s disease is a devastating condition that is very difficult to treat, and all of the medications designed to try to help have been remarkably disappointing. This groundbreaking study suggests that, with some instruction and in-home support, people with mild Alzheimer’s disease may be able to improve their brain function by raising their blood ketone levels. This promising pilot project lays the foundation for larger, controlled trials with the potential to teach and inspire us about hopeful new possibilities for families grappling with Alzheimer’s disease.
