Age-related cerebral atrophy may be seen on CT scan or MRI study of the brain as a variant of normal aging. Thus, it is not necessarily a disease, but a condition. It may or may not represent the prodrome for a disease. Minimizing risk factors for diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and stroke may be helpful. A daily exercise program of walking may be helpful. Ruling out certain vitamin deficiencies (e.g., vitamin B12 and folate) may be helpful. Seeing a physician for further assessment may be helpful.

Hi,
Cerebral Atrophy is not curable  . Once the brain cells begin to die , it is difficult to control the progression . It is possible to slow the progression of disease with the help of a nutritious diet comprising of  Omega 3 which is very helpful , multivitamin and multi ineral supplements and exercises . Adequate rest  and physical exercises like walking , cycling , stretching may help .Mental exercises like crossword puzzles may be useful . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards ! .
