Overcoming Post-accident Brain Cell Death?
Hello! My 19 year old jasmine wanted to ask, my close friend had an incident that nearly killed a quarter of his brain. My question is whether there is a possibility that his brain will return to normal? Because as far as I know the brain regenerates every day. Thank you very much!
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Cells in the body can regenerate when they experience death. For example, blood cells that routinely die after 120 days circulate in the body's bloodstream and are replaced by other, younger blood cells. However, this does not apply to brain nerve cells.
Brain nerve cells will still be able to develop until the age of 20 years and after that there will be no more developmental activity. So that if there is damage or death to nerve cells, the brain cannot be replaced by new nerve cells.
However we can optimize the health of the remaining brain cells by:
Meeting the nutritional needs of the brain by consuming foods rich in omega-3 and containing antioxidants Regular exercise Avoid smoking or cigarette smoke Pay attention to cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. Adequate rest If at this time the brain of your friend is almost dying, then you should do a consultation and examinations with a neurologist or neurosurgery specialist for better management.
That is the information we can convey. May be useful
