I was talking to a lady the other day that swears that a relative of hers with dementia has improved since taking Soya Lecathin.
 
I know it wouldnt work for all types of Dementia,but aparently, sometimes there is a bulid up of fats on the brain and the lecathin is supposed to help break down these harmful fats.
 
My sister has been taken off Arecept so I cant see any reason why we couldnt try her with Lecathin,hopefully the Doctor will say it is ok. I am not expecting miracles,I just thought that it might be worth trying it.
 
Has anyone else heard anything about this stuff?
 
Thanks.

Hi Baglady,

Did you doc ever give you the ok on the lecathin?? funny thing is, I make my own dog food and one of the ingredients in lecathin. I never heard of it for Alzheimer's but I would love to know more about it. If I find any interesting articles, I'll post them here.

Blessings!

Hi Rosie

We dont see the consultant until the 25th. We get the results of the scan then too. I will come back here and let you know what he says. If you are wondering why it is such a long time until the apointment, This is England, NHS, and waiting is what we do alot of unfortunatly.

Thanks Bag Lady, that really helps us put our short waits in perspective. NHS is National Health System???

Hi Lynn, how are you doing? Are you coping ok?

Yes Rosie thats right, National health system or service. I have heard both terms used. I am not sure which is correct but it amounts to the same thing in the end, Waiting LOL.

Conflicting info Lyn. I think this is another healthy thing that doesn't get a big studies because there is no big drug company to pay for it.

Hello Lyn and Rosie.

I am sorry that I have not posted in a long time. My sisters apointment was supposed to be last Tuesday the 25th. Unfortunaly we had to cancel it because my sister has been quite poorly and in pain due to a bad case of constipation. We have been told that the Doctor will arrange for another apointment but that he will come out to the house.

Of course because of this we still dont know the results of the MRI scan and I was not able to ask about the lecathin.

On the Tuesday morning my brother in law phoned me in a panic, and myself and one of my other sisters raced around to the house and while I dealt with the phone calls(Doctor nurse etc) my other sister bathed and comforted her.

Although I hate to say it,I am of the opinion that my sister now needs more care than her husband can cope with giving her.My sister has started to wander into the next room and before you can bat an eye she has spread feaces everywhere. My brother in law just doesnt seem to see the signs that she needs the bathroom. He shouts at her and treats her as a child. it can be very upsetting. My self and my other 2 sisters do what we can to help but she needs more than we can give when we all have our own familys and problems to deal with.

I will update you when I can. I hope that you are both coping ok.

We didnt get to ask about the lecethin because she has now been put back on the Aricept.I was surprised how easy it was for us to get her back on it,I had been told that once it was stopped that it would be very difficult for the Doctors to agree to her having it again. All it took was one email from me to the nurse and bingo they gave her the Aricept again. I feel annoyed though that we are still waiting to see the consultant. He promised to come out to the house after what happened with the last apointment(see above post) I have asked more than once if we will get an apointment soon but we are still waiting. I will be seeing the nurse tomorrow at my sisters house so I am going to ask again. We still havent been given the results of the MRI that my sister had months ago.

On a happier note my sister has been brighter and more talkative(although not much) since going back on the Aricept. Unfortunatly though she is now having to wear diapers at home and when out of the house. For a person of 56 its not nice but at least she doesnt seem to be bothered by it at all,infact she now seems oblivious as to when and why she needs to use the toilet.
