Diagnosing and Treating Memory Loss, Dementia, & Alzheimer’s
Do you have memory trouble or possibly the early warning signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s? Problems related to forgetfulness or dementia can be terrifying for a patient and cause difficulty with even the most simple day-to-day tasks. You may have trouble remembering people or events in the past, recent or distant. You may find yourself confused or substituting words with incorrect alternatives during a conversation. Many people even become lost when walking or driving around normally familiar places. Fortunately, our dementia and memory loss specialists at Complete Neurological Care understand how to diagnose and potentially treat/manage problems related to memory.
If you’re suffering from memory loss, contact our NYC memory loss doctors today. We specialize in providing effective treatment for dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other memory issues.
What Causes Memory Issues?
The cause of your memory loss will dictate what treatment or management will be prescribed. In many cases, memory loss is the result of a disease such as:
- Vascular dementia
- Frontolobral dementia
- Lewy Body dementia
- Alzheimer’s Disease
There are also a number of other factors that can lead to forgetfulness, including:
- Head trauma
- Use of certain medications
- Underactive thyroid gland
How Will the Doctors Diagnose the Problem?
At Complete Neurological Care, our memory loss specialists can perform a number of diagnostic exams. From monitoring blood flow in the brain to examining the electrical activity within your brain, these tests allow our team to diagnose the cause of your memory problems.
Possible memory loss exams may include:
- Electroencephalogram (to exclude seizures/encephalopathy)
- Brain neuroimaging (to detect degenerative disease)
- Carotid/Transcranial Doppler (to rule out vascular dementia)
- Blood work (to exclude reversible causes)
- Evoke Potential (particularly if the issue may be related to MS)
We will be happy to answer any questions you have during the diagnostic process and will carefully explain what each procedure involves. Remember, the earlier the problem is diagnosed, the greater the chance of successfully treating or managing the issue. Don’t ignore the symptoms we discussed above, see our memory loss and dementia specialists right away.
What are My Memory Loss Treatment Options?
That depends on the cause of your neurological issue. If the issue is a disease such as Alzheimer’s, then an early diagnosis can help you better manage the disease. Other factors besides diseases may mean the problem can be treated. Our memory loss doctors will discuss your options following a diagnosis and if necessary, refer you to a specialist.
