What Is My Risk of Alzheimer's? Aging Brain Health

What Is My Risk of Alzheimer's? Aging Brain Health

What Is My Risk of Alzheimer's? Aging Brain Health Your brain health is crucial, especially when assessing your risk of Alzheimer's disease. Understanding your individual dementia risk factors empowers you to make informed decisions and take proactive steps to preserve cognitive function.

Several factors contribute to Alzheimer's risk, including age, genetics, lifestyle, and medical conditions. Advanced age and a family history of Alzheimer's increase the likelihood of developing the disease, but lifestyle choices can also play a significant role. Engaging in regular physical exercise, maintaining a healthy diet, managing chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension, staying socially active, and challenging your brain with mental stimulation are all key strategies for reducing risk.

What Other Steps Should We Take?

Additionally, undergoing cognitive assessments, such as memory tests and neurological evaluations, can provide valuable insights into your cognitive health and detect any early signs of decline. By being proactive and informed, you can actively protect and support your brain health, making positive lifestyle choices and seeking appropriate medical guidance to mitigate the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

This episode is a conversation with neurologist Dr. Jeff Gelblum dedicated to discussing risk factors and how we can mitigate our risk of developing Alzheimer's disease or other dementia.
