Cognitive decline

What is Cognitive Decline?

Cognitive decline refers to a gradual worsening of cognitive abilities like memory, reasoning, attention, language, and visual perception. It is a normal part of the aging process, but can be accelerated by medical conditions like Alzheimer's disease or head trauma.

Some early signs of cognitive decline include:

Cognitive decline can range from mild (having some difficulty with complex daily tasks) to severe (confusion, personality changes, and inability to function independently). The key is to catch it early. Even mild declines can signify an underlying medical issue.

Some ways to help maintain cognitive health include:

If you notice signs of cognitive troubles, discuss them right away with your doctor. They can do memory screening tests and rule out reversible causes like medication side effects, vitamin deficiencies, thyroid issues, or sleep apnea.

Based on the results, your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes, further testing (MRI, PET scan) or treatment options.
