Once the doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, you will have a physical examination that will include a neurological exam. Likewise, he or she will request blood tests to know your cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as lack of vitamins and thyroid abnormalities.
You may also require brain imaging studies such as MRI and CT scans, which allow your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and rule out other neurological conditions related to loss of reasoning and disorientation.
Additionally, it will apply neuropsychological tests to evaluate your reasoning abilities.
The treatment to be followed will be based on addressing the causes or conditions linked to vascular dementia, focusing mainly on:
- Lowering cholesterol levels.
- Controlling blood glucose levels.
- Avoiding blood clots.
- Freeing the arteries from cholesterol.
- Lowering blood pressure.
