Some basic lifestyle changes can solve a third of dementia patients’ problems. What can researchers do to address dementia? According to a study done on dementia can be solved by providing good education in childhood. According to a study published in The Lancet, hearing loss, obesity and smoking are among the nine causes of brain damage. According to recent estimates, about 50 million people worldwide suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s.
This figure could reach 132 million by 2050. Dementia is caused by physical changes in the brain. People are more likely to lose their memory after getting this disease. Also, it interferes with other mental abilities.
Nine ways to reduce dementia
1. Standardize your hearing.
2. Expand the range of other knowledge related to this
3. Stop smoking
4. Reduce depression
5. Increase exercise
6. Increase social activity
7. Treat high blood pressure at the same time
8. Pay attention to healthy weight
9. Treat at the time of type 2 diabetes
The results of the study indicate that about 35 percent of dementia patients have the following nine types of risks.
Students between the ages of 11 and 12 have symptoms such as education, high blood pressure, obesity and hearing loss. Symptoms of the disease include diabetes, physical inactivity, smoking, and a desire to distance oneself socially.
Researchers have found that if a child stays in school until the age of 15, their education and socialization will reduce the risk of dementia. According to Gil Livingston, a professor at the University of London, “Although dementia has been diagnosed recently, there is some delay in brain development.”
Dementia, as seen in the present situation, is said to be greatly improved by simple lifestyle changes. Researchers have found that people between the ages of 45 and 65 have a 9 percent lower risk of dementia if they focus on their lifestyle. This number can be reduced by up to 5 percent just by quitting smoking.
Other factors contributing to the risk of this disease include depression (four percent), physical inactivity (three percent), social isolation (two percent), high blood pressure (two percent), obesity (one percent) and type 2 diabetes (one percent). .
The study found that in 2015, dementia treatment alone cost 8.18 billion worldwide.
“We did not include other potential risk factors such as food, alcohol, roadside living and sleep, which may be relevant. “Therefore, the possible prevention of it can be underestimated in statistics,” says Professor Livingston.
A 2015 study by doctors at the BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences in Dharan found that dementia was on the rise in Nepal as well. They conclude that the problem is even greater in low-income countries like Nepal.
According to an article published after a study by the institute’s physicians, the population of people over the age of 60 has been increasing in recent years compared to the general population. The population of people over the age of 60, which was 1.5 million in 2001, increased by 9 percent to 2.7 million in 2011, the report said. According to the report, dementia will increase in old age if you do not change your regular lifestyle.
