Default HD caregiver

I am a caregiver for a friend with HD for whom I provide supplements for managing his condition. I once did the same for a friend with ALS. In my research of the literature, I have come to the conclusion that protein mis-folding cascades underlie a number of neurodegenerative diseases including AD, PD, ALS and HD. Autophagy induction through diet manipulation might prevent or at least delay the onset of these conditions. I have an on-line monograph on the subject if anyone is interested in slogging through it.
