Preventing Memory Loss

Preventing Memory Loss


Do you ever forget where you left your car
keys? Or walk into a room and not know why you’re
there? We all do. This is not necessarily a sign of dementia. However, if memory problems begin affecting
your home or work life, then it’s time to see your health care provider. He or she will look for treatable causes of
memory loss. These things include vitamin B-12 deficiency,
an underactive thyroid or a medication side effect. Depression and sleep deprivation can also
cause memory problems. So what can you do to prevent memory loss? Maintain a healthy lifestyle. By eating a well-balanced diet, exercising
regularly and not smoking, you’ll keep the blood vessels in your brain open so that nutrients,
blood and oxygen can circulate freely. So remember, take care of your brain today
for a healthy memory tomorrow.
