In brief: Endocrine management

Close monitoring of endocrine function & replacement of hormones to mid-normal range.
Testosterone and growth hormone are often affected. Alcohol cessation, exercise, dha, may be useful. Donating blood every 60 days raises erythropoitin, possibly stimulating brain recovery. Consult pubmed.Gov.
