Vascular dementia, a condition that causes changes in thinking skills. The second most common type of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia often occur together. That is the cause of vascular dementia, memory, speech, or balance-related changes may occur suddenly, or may begin gradually and become worse over time.
Vascular dementia of causes
Enough brain cells healthy and to work properly blood, oxygen and nutrients should come from. Blood, “reaches the brain via the vascular system of a vascular network. The vascular system in the brain is damaged when blood vessels become blocked and blood cannot reach the brain. In this case, will lead to the death of brain cells. The death of brain cells, memory, thinking, or reasoning causes problems. All three of these elements “cognition” is called. Daily life has a significant impact on cognitive problems. Vascular dementia, damage to the blood vessels to the brain reducing or is caused by conditions that block the flow of blood to. A stroke, an artery (aorta) and clog the memory, thinking, or movement can cause many different symptoms including changes in. Also other conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure can damage blood vessels and eventually can cause problems with memory or thinking skills.
Vascular dementia (VaD) in the brain, the term is usually thought to be associated with vascular disease, worsening of memory and other cognitive functions in a sophisticated fashion. VaD patients often shows symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s patients, but it is not linked to Alzheimer’s pathology related changes in the brain, is caused by a chronic decrease in blood flow in the brain. Clinically, such patients may be very similar to patients with Alzheimer’s disease and the two diseases when they occur are very difficult to distinguish from each other. However, some clinical symptoms and brain imaging findings in the diagnosis of vascular disease when a patient’s cognitive impairment is not fully accounted useful.
Risk Factors For Vascular Dementia
It is the same with vascular dementia risk factors for heart disease and stroke. For vascular dementia risk factors:
*high blood pressure
*history of heart attack and stroke
*never be done or to be done physical exercise
The Relationship Between Vascular Dementia And Age
Vascular dementia symptoms in most of patients (seen at a young age possible) starts to emerge, usually after the age of 65-70, but significantly increases the risk of vascular dementia, 80s and 90s. The disease is often seen in male individuals.
Symptoms Of Vascular Dementia?
Damaged blood vessels in the brain, vascular dementia can cause different symptoms, depending on where they are located. For example, a person stroke memory, may experience problems with speech or balance, sudden. However, if a person is so small that it cannot be noticed, but few will see the damage that he might have had a stroke may increase over time. Many patients with vascular dementia memory problems. Others solve complex problems, is forced to decide, slow of thought or attention is easily dispersed. In patients with symptoms such as sudden or frequent urination or urinary incontinence may also occur. Also in people with vascular dementia, nervousness, anxiety, loss of interest, such as depression or changes in mood or behavior may be. Sometimes the problem of balance and movement in people with vascular dementia experiences. This may include weakness on one side of the body, and symptoms can worsen over time.
Vascular dementia can be treated with drugs?
The tissue die and yet unable to repair the brain tissue in vascular dementia is not itself a medical treatment, although there are medications that can help reduce the symptoms. Drugs used to treat memory problems in Alzheimer’s disease may be useful for vascular dementia. These drugs usually pertains to issues of the heart and a vein. Vascular demansli experienced depression or mood changes such as irritability, depression or anxiety can be treated with medications that are used for.
Else Can Contribute To Treatment?
In addition to medication to help a person with vascular dementia, a variety of there are ways. Maintaining a healthy level of physical exercise and brain health research to improve weight, heart problems, stroke and have shown that it can help reduce the risk of other diseases that affect the blood vessels. A balanced diet, adequate sleep and limited alcohol intake are other important ways of reducing the risk of heart disease and promoting brain health. Should be left if smoking is allowed, alcohol should be used and, if necessary, should be given weight, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol should be treated if there are other diseases that affect the brain such as.
