Self-Care at Home for Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
Individuals with PSP 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 helps maintain a healthy weight and prevent malnutrition and constipation. An individual with PSP should not smoke, both for health and safety reasons.
