What can I do to avoid dementia in the future?
Hello, dementia is common in every family. My grandmother who is 68 years suffers from dementia. I am scared what if I get dementia when I get old. Dementia is a syndrome that causes memory loss, thinking speed, mental agility, and understanding. My grandmother often forgets things. As dementia affects a person's mental abilities. I am worried. What if I suffer from dementia after my 60s. Please suggest what should I do now to prevent it? What can I do to avoid dementia in the future?
@alessandro Hello, the cause of dementia is unknown so it is usually difficult to prevent it. But here are a few things that will keep you healthy like exercise, eating healthy (A low-fat, high-fiber diet including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and whole grains can help reduce your risk of some kinds of dementia.), not smoking, Managing health problems including diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, don't drink too much alcohol, and making sure to keep your blood pressure at a healthy level. Thanks!
