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.

    As an oldie I have been much impressed, and moved actually, by this recent presentation of nearly 30 years of research into dementia and Alzheimer's. It is contained in a book entitled
    "THE END OF ALZHEIMER'S The First Programme to Prevent and Reverse the Cognitive Decline of Dementia."
    It is a book By Dr. Dale Bredesen, which presents the results of It concludes that Alzheimer's as a distinct disease doesn't exist. What does exist are 36 metabolic factors that can become unbalanced, of which any group of a minimum of 10 to 15 will affect brain health, awareness and cognition in strong ways.
    He and his team have developed a process of identifying which factors need rebalancing, and are having much success with the big majority of their patients. The Keto dietand intermittent fasting are fundamental to the cure.
