Self-Care at Home
Individuals with Pick disease should remain physically, mentally, and socially active as long as they are able.
A balanced diet that includes low-fat protein foods and plenty of fruits and vegetables will help maintain a healthy weight and prevent malnutrition and constipation. An individual with Pick disease should not smoke, both for health and safety reasons.
