The old man has poor memory, dementia and forgetfulness
In life, people who are frustrated at home often lose their lives and are slow to respond to normal communication.
Liu Li has always been uneasy and frowning.
Because this time my mother’s memory is getting worse and worse, not forgetting this is forgetting.
Even once, she actually forgot to burn the dishes on the stove, and went downstairs to chat with her neighbors, which turned out to be a fire.
Liu Li heard that the main manifestation of patients with Alzheimer’s disease is poor memory. Does mother have Alzheimer’s disease?
She quickly took her mother to the hospital for examination.
Distinguish between dementia and forgetfulness to distinguish memory changes Alzheimer’s disease and normal elderly forgetfulness can be roughly distinguished from the following aspects: the elderly with normal memory have poor memory, and the forgetting of doing things is partial, which is difficult to start recalling, andIt is suggested that the recovery of memories will be improved; while the forgetting of dementia is complete and gradually aggravated, the memory process is damaged, and the things that have happened can not be remembered, even if they are reminded, they cannot be remembered.
Initially, memory loss recently, and slowly and long-term memory is also poor.
Cognitive ability forgetfulness of the elderly, although the memory is declining, but the cognitive ability of time, place, relationship and surrounding environment has not decreased; but the demented old man has lost the cognitive ability to recognize the surrounding environment, do not know where and sometimesCan’t find the way home.
The elderly who are able to forget their living ability will remember the wrong date or sometimes forget it before, but they can still take care of their own life and even take care of their family members. The old people with dementia will make their illness worse and gradually lose their ability to take care of themselves.
Emotional forgetfulness of the elderly is not the same as before, but the emotional world of demented old people has become uncontested, insensitive, and very generous, but now it is very stingy.
Old-fashioned and forgetful old people are very distressed by the decline in memory. Some often write down things to do; while demented old people think more and more slowly, their words are getting scarcer and their response is slow.
Therefore, the poor memory of the elderly is not necessarily Alzheimer’s disease, but Alzheimer’s disease must have memory loss.
In addition, the other side of the current research field of dementia, mild cognitive impairment, is a state between normal aging and dementia. Patients have memory impairment that is disproportionate with age, and most patients turn into dementia.
This stage should be actively treated.
If the family finds that the elderly have sudden memory loss, they should not be careless and suspicion. They should go to the hospital for examination as soon as possible.
Treatment of dementia, drugs, exercise, encouragement of the elderly, once diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, family members should not be too serious and pessimistic.
The treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, like diabetes, requires long-term control of blood sugar, and it can also be targeted or delayed by scientific means.
Mainly can start from four aspects: one is to activate brain cell metabolism, improve or delay the symptoms of dementia; the second is to treat behavioral disorders, eliminate the symptoms and complications caused by dementia; the third is TCM syndrome differentiation; the fourth is acupuncture andPsychological treatment, according to the different psychological conditions of the patient, gives explanation, encouragement, enlightenment, comfort, suggestion and other psychological counseling to improve the quality of life.
Drug treatment is only an alternative to the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. It should also respond to patients’ psychological adjustment, intelligent training, behavioral care, rehabilitation training and other aspects of comprehensive rehabilitation treatment, generally can achieve better results.
Retaining memory requires a healthy diet. Many risk factors related to Alzheimer’s disease are related to people’s lifestyle. Prevention of Alzheimer’s disease should actively control some predisposing factors from middle age, pay attention to hypertension, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, cerebral thrombosis, etc.The impact of disease on memory.
Diet should pay attention to eat less foods that accelerate cerebral arteriosclerosis such as fritters, fat meat, crabs, animal internal organs, etc. Eat more fresh vegetables, milk, soy products, fish and fruits, etc., can delay aging, brain health benefitswisdom.
Suitable physical activity helps prevent arteriosclerosis.
Participate in various social activities, maintain an optimistic and open-minded personality and mood, regular life, quit smoking and drinking.
Emotional depression is also a precursor to dementia. It is also very important to have a good mood. Some children think that it is filial piety to send money to the elderly. In fact, how much money can’t be replaced by family, the children’s knees around the worldMusic is better than everything.
Prevention of “dementia” begins with the details of life Alzheimer’s disease, also known as Alzheimer’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disease with dementia as the main symptom.
Early prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease can delay the progression of the disease and develop severely.
How to expand, effective is to start from the details of life.
Prevention of arteriosclerosis Arteriosclerosis is the main enemy of dementia, suitable exercise, rhythmic aerobic exercise can orient and delay the aging of brain cells; muscle contraction during exercise will pump the surrounding blood to the brain to supply sufficient oxygen and nutrientsThey protect nerve cells, promote new neural connections, and enhance attention and alertness.
”Three high three low two ring” conditioning diet should start from “three high three low two ring”: “three high” is high protein, high unsaturated fatty acid, high vitamin; “three low” is low feces, low content, low salt.

Folic acid has a special function in maintaining memory, and it is rich in folic acid in beans and green leafy vegetables.
