The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, which can include other signs, such as:
- Asking questions repeatedly
- Difficulty finding the right words
- Difficulty with numbers and/or handling money in shops
- Becoming more withdrawn or anxious.
Can you prevent Alzheimer’s disease?
While there’s no exact way to prevent the condition from developing, a healthy lifestyle can reduce your risk.
For example, cardiovascular disease has been associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Therefore, in order to mitigate the risk of brain decline, one must take steps to improve their cardiovascular health.
