Dementia is a general term used to describe symptoms of memory loss or the loss of logical thought processes.
Dementia is often confused with or misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease, but there are many other causes of dementia, some of which can be successfully treated and cured. Drug interactions, kidney or liver disease, infections, nutritional deficiencies and dehydration, alcholism and emotional distress or depression can often be the cause of confused thinking and symptoms of dementia.
