Prevent Dementia with Dr. Elena

Prevent Dementia with Dr. Elena

We can do many things to prevent dementia. Some prevention involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular physical exercise, balanced nutrition, mental stimulation through activities like reading or puzzles, social engagement, and managing cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. Additionally, staying mentally active with challenging tasks, getting quality sleep, and avoiding excessive alcohol consumption and smoking can contribute to reducing the risk of developing dementia later in life.

Dr. Elena is back to discuss with us preventing dementia.

One factor that I don't see discussed as much is dealing with depression. Many years ago, I read that it's believed that many people who have dementia had low levels of depression for much of their adult lives. I wouldn't say my Mom was depressed in the way we generally think of depression, but I do know that she lived with an elevated sense of frustration most of my life. I think that is closely related and worth exploring more.

That's what we're doing in the podcast today. Dr. Elena is back to give us her medical opinions on what we need to do to prevent or reduce our risk of dementia.
