Back to the old or old or Alzheimer?
The 75 -year -old Mr. Li is very good. In the past a year or two, his family found that some of his living habits and personality have changed: when you see people always love to laugh; If you like to eat, you must eat enough, and sometimes fight with your grandson. The family is worried that eating too much will not let him eat. He is still angry and has no way to get up the Dongzang he likes to eat.
As the saying goes, “Old and young”, the family feels that the old man is older, and his personality is more and more like a child. He feels that this is normal and didn’t care. However, some time ago, the old man suddenly fell. Fortunately, someone next to him quickly sent him to the hospital. The CT examination of the brain found that there was a slight infarction. After treatment, the elderly’s condition was relieved. The family introduced the phenomenon of “old and young” to the doctor. The doctor combined with the brain CT diagnosed, and believed that some of the abnormal manifestations of the elderly may be a precursor to vascular dementia.
