Causes and Risk Factors

Causes of dementia depend on areas of brain affected due to dementia. Dementia is progressive in nature; one of most common type of progressive dementia is Lewy body dementia. There are four primary form of reversible dementia: hypothyroidism, vitamin B12 lack, neurosyphillis and Lyme disease. Head injury, stroke or brain tumour may cause dementia. Age is one of the most important risk factor of dementia, 65years exceeding persons has more chances of having dementia. Ageing and genetic inheritance from ancestors is beyond control but other risk factors such as hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, hyperthoiroidism, alcohol use in large amounts, smoking can be prevented or controlled. Few risk factors can be prevented with healthy lifestyle and proper diet. Causes and risk elements have contributed enormously in dementia research and discovered new measures in dementia conferences.
