    Please feel free to post any ask-the-doctor type questions here in the comments section and I’d be happy to try to answer them. Be sure to check out all the videos on cognition (including Constructing a cognitive portfolio), and don’t miss yesterday’s corresponding blog post Alzheimer’s Disease: Up to half of cases potentially preventable with lifestyle changes.

    Dear Dr. Greger,
    Are there any new studies showing treatments that may help with late stage Alzheimers; particularly Posterior Cortical Atrophy? A friend-of-a-friend of ours was in a bicycle accident 8 years ago, docs kept telling him his roller-coaster of medical issues were all related to “the brain injury”. His decline of late has been severe and has now seen docs who are diagnosing him with Stage 6 PCA. He is in palliative care now and they are using “anti-inflammatory methods” to slow the progression. He is a young man – only in his 50’s. Any light shed would be helpful.
    Thank you!
