#Dementia

Today my topic is on #Dementia #lossofthinking #Memory loss.Most of the peoples are worrying about this I will try to give solutions. Dementia is a broad term that describes a loss of thinking ability, memory, and other mental abilities. Many things can cause dementia. It happens when the parts of your brain used for learning, memory, decision making, and language are damaged or diseased. You might also hear it called major neurocognitive disorder. Dementia isn’t a disease. Instead, it's a group of symptoms caused by other conditions. About 5%-8% of adults over age 65 have some form of dementia. This percentage doubles every 5 years after 65. As many as half of people in their 80s have some dementia. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. Between 60%-80% of people with dementia have Alzheimer's. But there are as many as 50 other causes of dementia. Dementia symptoms may improve with treatment. But many of the diseases that cause dementia aren't curable. Dementia Causes and Risk Factors The most common causes of dementia include: • Degenerative neurological diseases. These include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and some types of multiple sclerosis. These diseases get worse over time. • Vascular disorders. These conditions affect the blood circulation in your brain. • Traumatic brain injuries caused by car accidents, falls, concussions, etc. • Infections of the central nervous system. These include meningitis, HIV, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. • Long-time alcohol or drug use • Certain types of hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid in the brain Certain physical and lifestyle factors can put you at higher risk of having dementia, including: • Age • Dementia in your family • Illnesses including diabetes, Down syndrome, heart disease, and sleep apnea • Depression • Smoking, heavy alcohol use, poor diet, and lack of exercise. Dementia Signs and Symptoms People with dementia have problems with thinking and remembering that affect their ability to manage their daily life. These are some signs to watch for: • Short-term memory problems, like forgetting where you put something or asking the same question over and over • Communication problems like not being about to come up with a word • Getting lost • Trouble with complex but familiar tasks, like fixing a meal or paying bills • Personality changes, like depression, agitation, paranoia, and mood swings Types of Dementia Dementia can be split into two groups based on which part of the brain is affected. • Cortical dementias happen because of problems in the cerebral cortex, the outer layer of the brain. They play a critical role in memory and language. People with these types of dementia usually have severe memory loss and can't remember words or understand language. Alzheimer's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease are two forms of cortical dementia. • Subcortical dementias happen because of problems in the parts of the brain beneath the cortex. People with subcortical dementias tend to show changes in their speed of thinking and ability to start activities. Usually, people with subcortical dementia don't have forgetfulness and language problems. Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and HIV can cause these types of dementia. • Homoeopathic Remedies 1. Anacardium Orientale – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia 2. Baryta Carb – A Homeopathic Remedy for Senile Dementia 3. Cannabis Indica – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia with Difficulty in Communication 4. Medorrhinum – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia Where the Patient Forgets Names and Words 5. Graphites Naturalis – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia when Indifference Accompanies Memory Loss 6.
