Dementia is a sypmtom

Dementia is a symptom......

Definition : An impairment in cognitive function manifested by long and sort term memory loss with impaired judgement, abstract thingking, and behaviour, resulting in self-care deficit.
Dementia is a progressive brain dysfunction, leads to a gradually increasing restriction of daily activities. The most well-known type of dementia is alzheimer's disease.

What is difference between dementia and alzheimer's?........It's common question, and doctors are some of the best at confusing us. Somehow dementia symptom is having sounds less, frigthening to many people, and now even the experts have started using the words interchangeably.

Dementia is a symptom, pain is symptom, and many different injuries and illnesses may cause pain. we are going to know what is causing the pain, and how to treat it?
Dementia simply means the symptom of deterioration of intelectual abilities resulting from an unspecified disease or disorder of the brain. Alzheimer's disease is one disease/disorder that causes dementia. Many other illnesses or syndrome may also cause dementia, like parkinson, a stroke or even dehydration.

If your physician has diagnosed dementia, it's time for second opinion. You are probably dealing either with a physician who is not comfortable with the truth, or one who doesn't know how (doesn't want to bother) to differentiate between all the possible causes of dementia.
