Pick Disease (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
There is no known way to prevent Pick disease. Being alert for symptoms and signs may allow earlier diagnosis and treatment. Appropriate treatment can slow or relieve symptoms and behavior problems in some people.
Some experts think that education and other forms of intellectual challenge may help protect people against the disease. People with low levels of education and mental/intellectual activity are said to be at a higher risk for the disease and to be more likely to have more severe disease, but this has not been proven conclusively.
