Alzheimer’s Products Under Scrutiny
An Alzheimer’s diagnosis can be devastating for patients and their families, and in the midst of their grief, these individuals may seek cures of all types beyond those recommended by a physician. In the dietary supplement industry many companies have begun to take advantage of patients affected by Alzheimer’s by advertising products claiming to improve memory and treat dementia. These products have recently come under scrutiny by Sentator Claire McCaskill, who is on the Senate Special Committee on Aging. In addition to soliciting the FDA on the safety of these dietary supplements, McCaskill sent letters to 15 major national retailers, including Amazon, to reduce the availability of potentially unsafe or misleading “miracle cures.”
