1 Answer:

Hello Rosayana, thank you for asking.


Dementia or senility is a condition of decreased thought power, cognitive power, memory, and decision-making abilities, which generally occur in the elderly. Although rare, dementia can occur in young or middle-aged people, called precocious dementia. The causes of dementia are various, one of which is Alzheimer's.


A diagnosis of Alzheimer's cannot be made based solely on memory loss. You should consult a neurologist or psychiatrist to determine the diagnosis. The doctor will conduct a series of tests, which can assess your memory and thinking abilities. Symptoms of dementia are generally in the form of decreased memory of the basics, for example family names or friends, home addresses, certain words, also often do the same activities repeatedly. Dementia also affects the ability to think and make decisions, so that it is difficult for someone to understand simple things, such as how to use cooking utensils.


However, easy forgetting does not always mean dementia. Often a person easily forgets because they are not focused or have concentration problems. Psychological stress or physical fatigue can trigger this. In addition, several physical conditions such as anemia, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels), hormonal disorders, vitamin deficiencies, or disease processes in the brain, all of which may cause impaired memory and concentration.


Please consult this problem with a neurologist or psychiatrist. The doctor may need to do some tests, also do imaging tests like MRI to see if there is a disease process in the brain. If there are no problems with the brain, the doctor will be able to train you to improve your memory and concentration.


That is my explanation. Hope this helps you. Regards.
