My mother has been getting better. I don't know what type of "dementia" she had, so can't really say what is causing the difference. Her memory has improved so much and her reasoning is even getting better. This started happening when she switched from eating waffles with sugar-free syrup for breakfast to eating bacon, eggs, and a piece of toast. My mother is Type-II diabetic. Today a doctor came by and she aced the memory challenges. Whoa! You go, Mom. It may also help that she has been taking less Ativan lately.
No, we haven't found the cure for Alz. She probably didn't have that. Maybe it was a metabolic dementia from her poor diet? Whatever it was, I'm glad it is better. If she didn't need someone to shop for her and make sure she is taking her medicines right, she might not even need a caregiver. Yes, ideas are coming to mind.
