How to reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer's or Dementia?

 

MRI of the brain.

MRI of the brain.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of your brain (cash price circa 2017 is about $425), and it needs to be read properly. We review a proper reading of your brain MRI. Some have commented that the MRI is expensive - how expensive is your first month in a personal care home?

Carotid Stenosis

Carotid Stenosis

Carotid arteries provide most of the blood flow to your brain. They serve as a nidus (place of origination) for micron strokes and strokes. An ultrasound of these arteries (cash price circa 2017 is about $245) is relatively simple because the arteries are close to the surface. There is no radiation from this test, which is considered noninvasive.

Atrial Fibrillation

Don't smoke

Don't smoke

The chemicals in the tobacco will cause your platelets (blood cells) to stick together and form small clots. The tobacco will also cause physiologic problems to the lining of the blood vessels that injure them and cause locations for damage and buildups

Hypertension

Hypertension

Know your blood pressure. Simply put, keep your systolic blood pressure less than 119 throughout your life. Forget terms like borderline, prehypertension, high-normal, hypertension stage 1-2-3. Those are different codes and symbols that all represent the same problem—high blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure, get it treated.
