Im just wondering how the progression of vascular dementia differentiates from a progression of Alzheimer's disease.
i think that dementia gets worse as we age certain aspects of dementia get worse over time and if you get like alzheimers or parkinsons it can be just as bad but you have the onset of other issues that make dementia harder because of the diagnoses they can be faster to show up cause you have other dementia issues arise through time theres different phases of alzheimers and other memory issues one over takes the other and it has different phases through time it is just how it developes
Vascular dementia starts with decreased blood flow to the brain, which deprives brain cells of oxygen and nutrients. In severe cases, it can end in stroke, which can cause death. Or, it can be progressive causing slow degeneration of the brain. Alzheimer's is more complicated. Researchers feel that it starts with decreased blood flow as well, followed by plaque that damages brain cells and brain neurons. The plaque usually builds up slowly and doesn't become noticeable until the person begins to show signs of memory and thinking impairment. Either vascular dementia or Alzheimer's can be serious or mild, fast or slow developing. If you know someone with either condition, you can have the person of someone related check Senior Enhancement Blog .
