Short Term Memory Loss

person-avatar

My mother started showing symptoms of short term memory loss - can't remember what she had for her dinner , who did phone a while ago , if she has offered Nimaz etc - I believe it's related to dementia but open to suggestions/ or consultation. I appreciate your honesty and time you will take to correctly guide us - who to contact based on my mother's condition.( preferably bilingual Doc who can also speak good Punjabi to diagnose/evaluate the cause). Kind regards Ash Rana

Hello,

Consult a neurologist / psychiatrist first. For testing and then you can visit psychologist for proper guidance about how to take care. Thanks

After age 60 memory issues are too common, but they develop gradually may
be your mother having those issues from last many years but not noticeable
at that time with the passage of time symptoms become more obvious and
clear. You must consult a psychiatrist for consultation and medical
advice.

Memory loss can be caused by a multitude of things. The most common causes of memory loss include medications, psychological disorders, dementia, nutritional deficiency, and head injuries. This condition can affect both short-term and long-term memory.

Stress, anxiety or depression too can cause forgetfulness, confusion, difficulty concentrating and other problems that disrupt daily activities.

However, the cause of dementia may be depression, which can be treated with medications, so I strongly recommend that you discuss this issue with your doctor. ... Again, there are many causes for short-term memory loss; the most common causes being stressful lifestyle, lack of sleep, anxiety, and depression.

These supplements are also linked to healthy cognitive function:
>> Ginkgo biloba – Increases circulation to the brain. Provides memory enhancing effects.
>> DHA – One of the omega-3 fatty acids essential for normal brain development and function.
>> A vision support formula – Providing antioxidants, zinc, lutein and zeaxanthin.
