Preventing Dementia: Know Risk Factors, Protect Your Brain

Making lifestyle adjustments is part of improving the health of your blood vessels. Your brain should start protecting your vascular health early because brain alterations can occur decades before dementia symptoms manifest. An added benefit is that better blood vessel health lowers your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other dangerous illnesses.

What Is a Neurologist?

Neurologists specialize in diagnosing and treating brain, spinal cord, and nervous system disorders. They address conditions like epilepsy, MS, Parkinson’s, strokes, and brain tumors. With advanced testing, they pinpoint causes and refer patients to neurosurgeons when necessary. Neurologists undergo medical school, internships, and neurology residencies, with optional subspecialties like epilepsy. They conduct thorough assessments using imaging and tests like EEGs and MRIs. Reasons for referral include frequent headaches, neurological injuries, and memory loss. Neurologists tailor treatment plans, incorporating medication and therapy, or refer patients for neurosurgery when needed. Accurate diagnosis is key for effective treatment and management of neurological conditions.

Why Would I Be Referred to a Neurologist?

Neurologists specialize in treating conditions affecting the nervous system, like migraines, seizures, strokes, MS, and Parkinson’s, requiring specialized testing and treatments. Symptoms such as pain, memory loss, and numbness may prompt a referral. They address various neurological issues, including head injuries, chronic headaches, epilepsy, and neurological symptoms post-COVID-19. However, they don't treat mental health conditions like depression; those require a neuropsychologist. Neurologists play a crucial role in diagnosing and managing nervous system disorders, helping patients understand and cope with their conditions while collaborating with other healthcare professionals for comprehensive care.
