Is There Any Way To Improve Mild Cognitive Impairment?

Question: Is there any way to improve mild cognitive impairment, or should I be focused on just preventing further memory loss?

Answer: Currently there are no FDA-approved medications for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment. However, if we believe that the person is in the earliest stages of what might become Alzheimer's disease in the future, we can consider using those medications and treatments at the mild cognitive impairment stage. Alternatively, we certainly encourage people to remain active intellectually, physically, follow a heart-healthy diet -- since these factors may also help you to improve your memory over time.
