Dodging Dementia (2nd Edition of The Essential Guide to Avoiding Dementia)
Dr Jerry Thompson, Mary Jordan
If you have concerns about you or a loved one developing dementia, Mary Jordan guides you through how to assess your personal risk and the many things you can do to mitigate that risk based on the latest evidence. Whether you have a close relative with dementia, a history of high-risk factors for this condition, or a diagnosis of MCI (mild cognitive impairment) you may be concerned to know how personally ‘at risk’ you or a loved one is, and what you can do to ‘dodge’ what is definitely not inevitable. In this second edition of her highly regarded Essential Guide to Avoiding Dementia, Mary Jordan guides readers through the many factors associated with developing dementia and the science behind our current understanding, including: diet, exercise, trauma, pharmaceuticals (contributed by Dr Jerry Thompson), genetics, social isolation, sleep, neurological deficits such as hearing loss, insulin resistance and diabetes type 2. Based on her professional and personal experience, Mary offers a programme from which the individual reader can choose what works for them and their individual risks and circumstances with the emphasis on what is practically rather than theoretically possible.
