Learning About Dementia
The Huntington's disease is a memory loss which is seen for instance in patients' family members, who are developing dementia in their 40s or 50s.
Dr. Jose Soza, Family Medicine Physician with Baptist Health Primary Care, makes some differences between dementia and Alzheimer's. He explains dementia is memory loss, but there are different types of it.
Alzheimer's is one of the types of dementia. For physicians the difficult part is to determine which type of dementia the patient has. Dr. Soza considers a healthy lifestyle in younger ages could help in older ages.
