After reviewing your symptoms and medical history, the specialist will perform a physical examination, tests to assess attention span, memory, and abilities, as well as psychiatric tests to know dementia’s origin and degree of progression.
Likewise, they will request laboratory tests, blood tests, computed tomography, and MRI, to assess the brain status. Treatment to be followed will depend on the type of dementia and its degree of progress. Keeping your mind active, exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, quitting smoking, and controlling cardiovascular risk factors can help reduce your risk of developing dementia.
At the Neurological Center, a select group of highly trained and certified doctors in the various neurological specialties are ready to assist you with the quality and warmth that characterizes us.
