How to Prevent Dementia
At the moment, there are still many unknowns when it comes to dementia. While researchers have been able to pinpoint certain risk factors, they are still looking further into exactly how, and why, dementia develops for some people. With that in mind, there are no concrete or guaranteed ways to prevent dementia.
That being said, leading a lifestyle that is healthy can go some way to reducing the risk of dementia in the future, along with cardiovascular disease and other health conditions.
Researchers have pinpointed some risk factors that can increase the likelihood of you developing dementia, or a disease that causes dementia. Some of these risk factors such as getting older or our genetics are impossible to change. But there are some risk factors that we have some control over, which when addressed may lower the risk.
