Is it Dementia?
How to Understand, Diagnose, and Treat
Dr. David Shprecher from Banner Sun Health Research Institute shares with us his experience as a Neurologist specializing in movement disorders this week. He takes us through the basics, helping us untangle dementia and the less common forms, reminding us how important a specific diagnosis is. With treatable causes of memory loss like vitamin deficiency, sleep problems, or side effects to medications, the help of a specialist creates an opportunity to impact cognitive issues early and often. In addition, an accurate diagnosis of dementias like Lewy body, frontotemporal, and vascular are important to identify for treatments, family knowledge, and preparation for future stages to help improve quality of life.
