Hello Kartinalis, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Dementia is a condition where there is a decrease in brain function for thinking, memory, making decisions, understanding, language functions, and others. This condition is commonly found in people who are elderly. There are several causes of dementia, namely vascular dementia (related to a disturbance in the flow of blood vessels to the brain), commonly found in stroke patients; dementia Alzheimer's (a progressive condition, related to heredity and hormonal disorders in the brain, usually occurring at age 65 years, but can also occur more quickly); dementia due to other diseases (eg Huntington's disease which is a hereditary disease, can be accompanied by abnormal body movements that are not realized).
Apart from dementia, the cause of concentration and thinking problems or remembering someone can be caused by several other things, for example:
Anemia / lack of red blood cells. The most common cause of anemia is due to lack of iron in the body. Someone who has anemia can feel easily weak, tired, lethargic, look pale, impaired in learning and concentration, dizziness, until fainting. This is due to lack of oxygen delivered to the brain. Dehydration. Lack of fluids in the body can cause a person to feel thirsty, weak, unable to focus and difficult to concentrate. Psychological problems, for example in people who are depressed. In addition to deep feelings of sadness, feelings of lack of energy, people with this problem can also experience learning and work disorders, difficulty sleeping, decreased appetite, and others. History of head injury. Trauma or collisions that occur on the head can cause the brain also 'shaken' and may be affected, causing a decrease in function in the brain. Keep in mind if you have experienced an injury or head collision before this happens. and others That need to be considered, the condition of dementia is actually not contagious, but you could be psychologically affected so that carried over into your daily life. It should also be noted also the possibility of other causes that you can experience as stated above. My advice, keep doing your activities as usual, multiply activities to hone the focus and power of thought, if it helps, make a list of activities that you have to do, and try to follow the list. Always try to focus and be careful when doing activities that need special attention (eg cooking and turning off the stove, driving, etc.).
I hope you continue to adopt a healthy lifestyle by:
Get plenty of rest Eat foods that are high in iron, for example red meat, chicken liver, fruits, and vegetables Drink plenty of water at least 2 liters / 8 cups Regular physical activity (exercise at least 3 to 5 times a week, with a minimum duration of 30 minutes) Avoid stress (look for positive hobbies to fill your free time) If the complaints are persistent or you feel very disturbed by your current condition, I suggest you check yourself with a neurologist or health facility with a memory clinic or psychiatrist.
That's all, hopefully it's useful and always healthy!
