The Process Of Dementia?
Good afternoon doctor. I want to ask what is the pathway for dementia itself? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Dementia is not a particular disease. Dementia is a general term for a decrease in the ability of brain function to interfere in everyday life. The function in question can be in the form of memory, the ability to think, understand something, language skills and so forth. The causes of dementia also vary, among which can be a cause of dementia are:
Alzheimer's disease Parkinson's disease Huntington's disease Lewy body disease Brain blood vessel disorders Brain injury or concussion Infection of the central nervous system Long-term consumption of alcohol or illegal drugs The accumulation of fluid in the brain cavity
And much more. So regarding your question too, the pathway or pathway that causes a person to become dementia can vary, it could be due to lack of blood flow to certain parts of the brain that causes brain tissue to die, it could be due to high levels of certain proteins in the brain that make its cells unable to function with well, brain shrinkage due to pressure from blood or other fluids, etc. You need to be more specific to be able to know more about dementia.
Furthermore, the handling also becomes diverse and so is the possibility of cure. Some cases of dementia cannot be cured, and existing treatments are only to relieve symptoms and avoid complications. Therefore, we need to know a few things that can help reduce the risk of developing dementia, such as avoiding alcohol consumption, smoking, exercising regularly, exercising the brain regularly, maintaining ideal body weight, and maintaining overall health. So, hopefully answering your question
