There are many types of memory loss and causes for forgetfulness. While certain age-related degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's still have no cure, it is important not to ignore memory problems. There are other types of memory loss that can be reversed. The Alzheimer's Association advises that Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging and encourages people to take steps to keep their mental health strong during all stages of life.

Dementia is a group of symptoms that affects mental tasks and a person's overall ability to function. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer's disease, a progressive disease of the brain which slowly impairs cognitive function and memory. Vascular dementia is another form, which can occur suddenly after a stroke. While these account for the largest percentage of dementia cases, there are other memory conditions that can possibly be treated and reversed.

According to MedlinePlus, dementia due to metabolic causes is a "loss of brain function that can occur with abnormal chemical processes in the body." If caught soon enough, brain function can return to normal, but if left untreated these chemical abnormalities could cause brain damage.

Some metabolic causes of dementia include, nutritional disorders such as vitamin B1 deficiency, severe alcohol use and Endocrine disorders such as Addison disease and Cushing disease, reports Medline Plus.

According to the Mayo Clinic, there are different areas of the brain that can be affected by dementia. Understanding the underlying cause of the symptoms of memory loss is very important for treatment and possible reversal of the condition.

Among the dementia-like conditions that could potentially be reversible include infections and immune disorders. These disorders can result from diseases ranging from meningitis to Lyme disease or any disorder that compromises the immune system. Reactions to medications or an interaction between medications may cause curable memory loss.

Any condition that might result in a lack of oxygen to the brain, in addition to a stroke, asthma, heart attack or even carbon monoxide poisoning may cause potentially curable memory loss.
