Non-Alzheimer's Dementia Causes

Dr. Crandall By Friday, 05 January 2018 04:29 PM Current | Bio | Archive

There are many myths about Alzheimer’s disease. A big one is the assumption that it occurs as part of the normal aging process.

This is not true. Alzheimer’s is a disease that attacks the brain.

Many people erroneously assume that Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are the same thing, but they are not. There are many different types of dementia, and while Alzheimer’s disease is the major cause, it’s not the only one.

Other causes of dementia include:

• Vascular disease. Diminished blood flow to the brain that follows a series of strokes or tiny strokes.

• Parkinson’s disease. People with Parkinson’s — chronic and progressive neurological disease — are twice as likely to develop coronary artery disease and stroke.

• Degenerative neurological diseases. This group of rare neurological diseases includes Huntington’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, Creutzfeldt- Jakob disease, and normal pressure hydrocephalus.
