A history of forgetting someone's face often even though they have just met and forgot to place an item may be a form of dementia. Dementia is a collection of symptoms that are characterized by decreased memory and way of thinking. The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer's disease. Patients with dementia often experience complaints related to recall. Patients with dementia often occur at around 65 years of age, while dementia at a younger age is called young onset dementia.
Risk factors for patients with dementia can include:
2. stress or depression
3. blood cholesterol is more than normal
6. head trauma
8. rarely exercise
Patients with dementia often encounter comorbid complaints in the form of:
1. memory disturbance
2. often confused
3. reduced concentration
4. changes in personality and habits
5. withdrawal or depression
6. reduced ability to daily tasks
Therefore, if your child has been confirmed by a doctor as an Alzheimer's condition, then further consultation and treatment should be done with the treating doctor at this time. This is related to the process of diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of your child in the recovery and treatment.
In general, cases of Alzheimer's risk are almost the same as dementia, so some risk factors need to be controlled to help the patient's care process, except for risk factors related to genetics or family history of the same disease or the discovery of Down syndrome which also has an effect on the brain. Therefore, identify several risk factors that can be experienced and found in your child. If there are one or several risk factor conditions, then control and approach it in stages.
Just as there is obesity or lack of exercise as a risk factor that is reached, then provide assistance to help control body weight and strive for ideal body weight by doing regular exercise.
Discuss all things related to Alzheimer's that happened to your child. Further examination can be done by a doctor to help find out whether there are other medical conditions that affect, such as an infection or brain tumor. The results of the examination and evaluation of the doctor will be a reference for care and treatment of patients to improve their memory skills and independence.
