Dementia diet

Nutrition needs for dementia patients.

People suffering from dementia tend to have two nutrition-related problems:

  • a diet low in important nutrients, vitamins, micro- and macro-elements, and omega 3 fatty acids, among other nutrients, and
  • aluminum toxicity may also play a role in dementia.

Dr. Kalitenko’s suggestions:

  • Avoid aluminum in cookware, aluminum foil, and other products that contain aluminum, such as antacids and antiperspirants.
  • Maintain steady blood sugar by eating high complex carbohydrates: starchy foods like potato, rice, etc.
  • Increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, and cold-water fish.
  • Avoid processed food, refined sugars, and fruit juices.
