Alzheimer’s disease is a prevalent and devastating illness for which we do not yet have efficacious pharmacological treatments. However, accumulating evidence points to the importance of non-pharmacological strategies in slowing down disease course, which will likely become cornerstones of Alzheimer’s disease management in both prodromal and overt disease courses.
We will discuss some of these strategies including vascular risk factors management, nutrition, physical exercise, cognitive reserve and activities, via the lens of personalized medicine.
