Some degree of memory problems, as well as a modest decline in other thinking skills, is a fairly common part of normal aging. There is a distinction between normal changes in memory and memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease and other cause of dementia and neurodegenerative disease. Some of the conditions which causes memory loss are curable and treatable.
Dementias are responsible for the greatest burden of neurodegenerative diseases, with Alzheimer’s representing approximately 60-70% of dementia cases. In general, dementia is the term for memory loss and the most common type of dementia is called Alzheimer’s disease.
Every type of dementia is a result of neurodegeneration (shrinking of the brain). Shrinking is caused by a lot of neuronal (nerve cell) death occurring throughout the brain. Because of the large number of neurons dying, people with dementia not only start losing their memories, but they eventually lose their ability to move, communicate, and even think properly.
Other early signs might include:
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is the stage between the expected cognitive decline of normal aging and the more serious decline of dementia. It can involve problems with memory, language, thinking and judgment that are greater than normal age-related changes. If you or a loved one start to become aware that memory or mental function has been progressively worsening, this could be considered MCI, but symptoms should not be severe enough to significantly interfere with your daily life and usual activities.
Some of the signs of MCI:
There is no specific test to confirm a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Your doctor will decide whether MCI is the most likely cause of your symptoms based on the information you provide and results of various tests that can help clarify the diagnosis.
Researchers and physicians are still learning about mild cognitive impairment. For many people, the condition eventually progresses to dementia due to Alzheimer's disease or another disorder causing dementia. Other people's memory loss doesn't progress much, and they don't develop the spectrum of symptoms associated with dementia.
Several medical conditions can cause memory loss or other dementia-like symptoms that can be treated. Some of the possible causes of reversible memory loss include:
For the treatable causes listed above you would start with treating the underlying condition. Knowing that mitochondria dysfunction and inflammation can be associated with higher risks of memory loss and forgetfulness, this provides an opportunity for helpful treatment options. Beyond traditional medical therapies there are also several research supported alternative or wellness based therapies that can have a major impact on disease treatment and prevention.
