Dementia is not a disease, but rather a group of many symptoms that indicate a brain disorder. The term is often used to refer generally to a decrease in cognitive ability and memory problems.
It occurs when healthy neurons (nerve cells) stop functioning or brain cells become damaged and die. Many factors put a person at risk of dementia, such as aging and family history.
Other risk factors include excessive use of alcohol, excessive smoking, atherosclerosis, high and low blood pressure, high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), depression, diabetes, high estrogen levels, and high levels of homocysteine in the blood (an amino acid your body produces).
There are many different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia (DLB), Parkinson’s disease, mixed dementia, and frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
Each type of dementia has its own signs and symptoms. However, in the initial stage, some common symptoms appear.
Here are the top 10 early signs and symptoms of dementia.
