KEY POINTS

Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest psychiatrist Dr. Dan Bober discuss the potential of the ketogenic diet as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. A recent study suggests promise for those with mild cognitive impairment, but questions remain about the diet’s long-term benefits and risks.

Potential Brain Benefits

The keto diet may reduce brain plaque and improve brain function, leading to enhanced cognition in some individuals with Alzheimer’s.

Long-Term Challenges

The keto diet can be extremely difficult to maintain over a long period, presenting challenges for potential use in Alzheimer’s treatment.

Advanced Alzheimer’s

While the keto diet seems to offer the most benefit with early-stage or mild Alzheimer’s, further research is needed to evaluate its effects in those with advanced cases.
