Is there a way to reduce the frequency of lipofuscin? Change of diet? Medication?

No: Lipofuscin is a wear-and-tear pigment that so far as we know does no harm. Despite "pop" claims in pathology books, even newborn babies' hearts are loaded with it.

Specific concerns -- talk to a credible scientific physician. ...Read more

Diet Pills (Definition)

Is there a way to increase the intake of iron in my diet?

Is there a way to increase the intake of iron in my diet?

Yes: My militant vegetarian friends won't like me saying this, but by far the most available and best source of iron in your diet is meat, especially red meat. Foods that anti-meat-eaters claim are "great sources of iron" (peanut butter, raisins, molasses, tofu) actually aren't, and iron in spinach can't be absorbed except by Popeye. ...Read more

Your neurologist and neurosurgeon should be able to give you a solid assessment of this. ...Read more
