    • Teala on April 16, 2022 at 8:13 pm

      @W M because when you poison yourself On a daily basis, your body Tries to adapt. But it can’t completely adapt without a sound nutrition so when you go to eating good food and nourishing yourself internally, your body understands the difference and therefore knows it’s been poisoned

    • Teala on April 16, 2022 at 8:14 pm

      he never was fit so he has more of a chance to have dementia then Biden. old is old and you can only extend your life with proper nutrition and exercise but you also have to exercise your brain.

    • Teala on April 16, 2022 at 8:16 pm

      @Violett Fem i never said i supported any thin Biden does. All these politicians suck..

    • Wong Yvonne on May 17, 2022 at 8:54 am

      Very clear explanation. Thx. However, I have problems with wordings like they are not presence, they are not themselves anymore at the last stage. I have taken care my dementia mum for sixteen years. My mum died last year. She was herself all the time but she has gone through stages of anxiety, especially she felt so insecure that she became another person in her early stage. She even developed illusion in her early stage. Gradually, with lots of works, she regained her security and stability though she had lost most of her memory of things. She did feel those who were close to her and dear to her at her late stage.

    • THE MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE on May 28, 2022 at 8:21 am

      13:49 is poor spelling a sign of dementia?

  2. sal3s3 on September 24, 2021 at 5:25 pm

    I truly thought I had a touch of dementia when I realized I was going through perimenopause. But, things are turning around, as I am post-menopausal now. Thank God! Great informative video!

    • Beckie Jani on October 29, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    • Brenda Brosig on February 3, 2022 at 1:29 am

      I’m 6 months to go until I’m “officially menopausal.” I have these symptoms— was Hopi g it was just peri menopause. So stressed about this.

    • Amanda Reid on April 1, 2022 at 5:35 pm

      Yes exactly! I had to really simplify my life and work on being present more than ever during the peri phase. Things would get really overwhelming, then I would forget things, get stressed about it then it would spiral as I got upset with myself. I have had to change my work, reduce commitments and the amount of choices I need to make on a daily basis and I’m enjoying life more again now in the post phase. Wishing you all well. Thank you Doc for your wonderful work.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on April 9, 2022 at 1:27 pm

      Thanks for sharing sal3s3. Glad it wasn’t more serious. 😄

  3. Louisa klimentos on September 25, 2021 at 9:06 am

    It can also be menopause , lack of sleep , slow thyroid or hormonal imbalance or poor digestion . It is not always dementia .

    • Life is Sweet on September 24, 2022 at 5:30 pm

      @Pleiades Luciernaga synthroid is T4 and cytomel is T3. I used to take Armour but when it got impossible to get it from the pharmacy for weeks or even humana couldn’t get it, I had to switch back to synthroid which not covered by my insurance. I have a feeling something was happening to Armour abity to produce the thyroxine or natural meds because the pharmaceutical companies want yu to take their synthetics.

    • Pleiades Luciernaga on September 25, 2022 at 2:53 am

      @Life is Sweet yep, same here.I switched to Naturethroid and feel like it’s on par with Amor. All of the synthetics made me feel like poo.
      The price is very reasonable for Naturethroid. Highly recommend trying Good RX to save $.
      And there was indeed an issue with Armor last year. I recall Goodgling it, but can’t recall what it was. I think there was a contamination issue.

    • Jennifer Reed on September 25, 2022 at 10:48 am

      Thank you!!!

    • J P on September 26, 2022 at 11:06 am

      All those things cause dementia. Dementia is an umbrella term.

    • gilbert perez on December 8, 2022 at 1:21 pm

      It could be that the things that you just listed put you at higher risk for dementia

  4. Dona Hunt on September 28, 2021 at 11:37 am

    im a physician and i LOVE this guy, ive never heard anyone else speak on health who makes SO MUCH SENSE. His gift is being able to extract the important FUNDAMENTALS and present it in a way that ANYONE can understand.

    • Melba Poole on April 4, 2022 at 3:23 am

      @her indoors You can always set the playback speed higher if you want to hurry with the presentation. With that said, I like the fact that he speaks on a level that a professor would for students of all ages.

    • P Ville on April 8, 2022 at 5:33 pm

      @DonnaHunt I couldn’t agree wit you more. He is very informative, and easy to understand. Anyone saying he is long winded must realize that he is giving a lot of information in as a concise manner as possible. Otherwise it would not make sense.

    • A Foxy Fox on September 3, 2022 at 3:43 pm

      To “her indoors”, have you considered purchasing a windbreaker type jacket and wearing it while watching the videos?

    • A Foxy Fox on September 3, 2022 at 3:47 pm

      To “lolitaalmoatgrown” I know! “physician” I thought those went out with the dinosaurs!

      You’re not a physician when you use the English language like a teenager. SMH

  5. Hjbjuviyg Hjvhjvjy on November 11, 2021 at 3:57 am

    I am 86 years old. Forgetting a few things is perfectly normal at any age. Yes, I go upstairs to do something, get distracted, do something else. Not the worst thing that can happen ( unless I was going to the bathroom).
    I have an active life to lead. Worrying about all what might be as I get older is counterproductive and likely to induce just those problems. Nothing you can really do anyway.
    My advice? Get on with your life. Keep active. Do those things you enjoy and stop worrying.

    • Patsy Stone on September 9, 2022 at 3:41 am

      Agree 👍.

    • Cu Jo on September 23, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    • Kathleen Brown on September 24, 2022 at 8:42 am

      What I hope is to keep my spirits up and happy a d keep looking forward, finding things to do and get my to do’s done. When I go for a yearly checkup m6 doctor depresses me because at 75 she thinks and tells me I am old. At 69 40 year old men asked me out. I am very active and do manual labor outside lots of it. She bri gs me down a d I get depressed for a few days and start to think its hopeless. I think its sad that my doctor cannot leave me to feel good and project this outward. I forget names once in awhile always have she said probably because your 75!

    • True Storey on September 24, 2022 at 12:04 pm

      Great advice from my elder, and saved me 20 minutes of my life, much love

    • my Entertainment on September 26, 2022 at 2:27 pm

      I think everyone even if you are in your twenties forgets why they came into room once in while and have to mentally retrace your steps to remember.
      I agree with you.
      Live active life mentally and physically it is great advice to prolong your health.

  6. Kari Stone on March 6, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Really helpful Dr Sten and very relevant. My mother now has advanced glaucoma and subsequently not walking/moving as much as she used to. Her previously mild dementia symptoms have become much more noticeable since then.

    • Aldous Huxley on November 24, 2022 at 3:57 pm

      Keto diet. Coconut oil turmeric.

  7. Angela Stroud Pate on March 7, 2022 at 5:33 am

    I’ve been frightened of dementia my whole adult life, because I’ve had the worse of these symptoms since childhood. I can’t imagine how bad it will be for my family if dementia is added to that. 😞

    • Jimmy Garcia on October 23, 2022 at 7:07 am

      Do you suffer from adhd or any type of learning disorder?

  8. Amy Walker on March 7, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Very good presentation. I think keeping active, involved and productive are very important to maintain brain function as well as avoiding greasy, high calorie or sweets that tend to clog arteries and contribute to neuronal tangles. It’s hard because we have devices to do everything for us, we sit too much and our culture surrounds us with the absolute worst food choices we’ve come to think are healthy foods.

  9. bigguy130 on March 8, 2022 at 10:04 am

    I recall hearing about a person(friend of a friend) who thought he had early dementia or alzheimer’s(in his 40’s), turned out he had 5 mercury(silver) fillings for decades and had significant improvement after safely removing the mercury fillings and going through a mercury detox program(and general heavy metal detox) over the course of a year. So he believed that the mercury was causing brain fog. He also noticed a reduction in anxiety and depression which he believed the mercury was causing.

    • Glenn Henshaw on April 4, 2022 at 6:32 pm

      @Gabriella Grace Of course Mercury is toxic to the body and brain. I never said it wasn’t. But fillings that perhaps have some mercury in them do not raise the mercury levels in the blood. So the fillings are not harmful.

    • The Tae Kwon Doe on June 27, 2022 at 6:02 am

      @Glenn Henshaw Dentist?

    • Glenn Henshaw on June 28, 2022 at 7:57 pm

      @The Tae Kwon Doe No but I was paranoid about this when I was a kid. I asked my dentist.

    • Life is Sweet on July 1, 2022 at 9:26 pm

      I can tell if my thyroid meds are inadequate because I get brain fog and tired and gain a few pounds. I have only 1/2 thyroid so I have lab work every 6 months. The thyroid controls everything.

    • Wanda Rogaczewski on August 13, 2022 at 9:56 pm

      Wow thats really interesting to know, I had quite a lot of silver fillings but have had those teeth removed I would like to have known this way back when I first got them. Thank you. 👍

  10. Don Kemp on March 10, 2022 at 1:13 am

    My wife was diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s about 18 months ago. Her planning function is gone and her personality is changing / has changed. As frustrating as that is for me, I remember that is her dementia talking to me but I’m still talking to the love of my life.

    • The Big Picture on August 11, 2022 at 3:56 pm

      Dementia isn’t a terrible way to go as you can get a childlike appreciation of life.

    • A Foxy Fox on September 3, 2022 at 3:41 pm

      In what ways has her personality seemed to change?

    • Don Kemp on September 6, 2022 at 12:57 am

      @A Foxy Fox she has never had a mean bone in her body. Now, she is short-tempered, easily angered, makes comments about kicking me in my jewels, etc. Tonight, we were sitting with family including our 2 month old grandson who I was holding. She commented she never gets to hold him, so I delivered him to her. 10 minutes later she asks if I want to take him. 10 minutes after that, she was saying she never gets to hold him. It seems to be worse later in the day, when we are with people, and if she has had a glass of wine.

    • Patsy Stone on September 9, 2022 at 3:51 am

      Lost my husband to Alzheimer’s 12 years ago. He was not that old which made it worse. My heart goes out to you. It’s quite a challenge. In the end I prayed God would take him quickly. Enjoy every day with your wife while you can and take care of yourself.

    • harmoni on September 24, 2022 at 10:38 pm

      You are an awesome guy! Don’t forget any age can have this dementia. According to this chart, I’m a stage 3 dementia ha ha, I constanrly forget person’s name I’ve just met & afraid to ask again second time.

  11. Erik Erwin on March 10, 2022 at 9:56 am

    I’ve worked with people with dementia for 20 years. You did 90% explaining it.
    Thanks for bringing awareness to the issue.

    • alleiN on April 23, 2022 at 3:28 am

      Anything else you want to add?

    • MyOwnPath on April 30, 2022 at 1:48 am

      And the 10% he missed? Surely you’d like to explain that part for us? (Please)

  12. jeffw1267 on March 11, 2022 at 1:31 am

    When we first heard that my grandmother was losing it mentally, my other family members were arguing over whether it was true or not. But I noticed that her manner of walking had changed completely. She seemed to be standing up straighter, which doesn’t sound bad, but she was also super stiff and took much shorter steps. And this happened within just a couple of months. Now I always notice the way old people walk.

    • Just Jen on April 28, 2022 at 5:49 pm

      jeffw1267 Has she seen a neurologist? You are describing some hallmark symptoms of what might be Parkinson’s.

    • Life is Sweet on July 1, 2022 at 9:11 pm

      I injured my Back moving heavy plants in 2018 and have two herniated disc’s down low. They cause pain, balance issues and sometimes sciatica. Yes I stand differently when in pain, Gmab. Also walk more carefully too when my back flares up. Im 72 and mg husband is 80. We are both still normally active, live in a big city and have to drive all over. I use GPS if not familiar with an address. I’m retired but my husband is still in the insurance business which requires an alert mind. Injuries to back and knees happen at any age. Don’t label it dementia for heavens sake. On the other hand, dementia patients can experience posture or gait problems with no prior injury. That’s what’s important. No injury.

    • Heidi Chung on August 25, 2022 at 1:20 pm

      I agree with JustJen. My uncle was first diagnosed with dementia but after further testing, it turned out to be Parkinson’s. I would ask the doctors to do further testing. Does your Grandma seem to drool or have difficulty swallowing?

  13. notsoancientpelican on March 18, 2022 at 6:41 am

    1. Reduction of brain endurance 2. change in posture 3. smaller handwriting 4. reduced sense of smell 5. reduced quality of sleep 6. hunched and curled up posture 7. loss of arm swing when walking 8. chronically poor judgment 9. losing track of date or season 10. losing things and being unable to retrace steps 11. difficulty being coherent in speech

  14. Dayne Allen Sheets on March 20, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    I am turning 70 in one month. This talk is wonderful because I know I am changing but am not considered by my regular physician, friends and family to be moving into dementia. They don’t know what I am truly experiencing and how I am compensating for the loss of my brain function. From this video on the various stages I can identify my level of decline. For one thing it is not a straight line but I am experiencing various symptoms that mix/ between the different levels. This is going to give me a way to truly explain to the doctor and family where my level is and not be considered a black and white dementia or none dementia. I know the symptoms I am having and am now going to start a journal of my actions/losses and the dates. Thank you so much for giving me a useful tool to document my decline to discuss it with the doctor.

    • Wayne on March 27, 2022 at 12:14 am

      My mother was in a poor state, but got her BMI down to the recommended level by having large breakfasts, small lunches and no dinner (it took about 8 months). Following the WAHLS Protocol diet (no refined carbs, lots of fresh vegetables and fish/chicken). Her memory and completion has improved dramatically during that time.

  15. Michele A SantaMaria on April 1, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Oh! Smart man! Thank you for this video. My husband had a head injury at age 18 and now deals with the early stages of what you mentioned. Now I know more about how to help him. Thank you, Dr. Ekberg.

  16. Susan Fortier on April 6, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Lipitor seriously affected my memory and caused me to lose my job. Alzheimer’s runs in my family and at the age of 58 I was sure I was losing it. You could tell me something ten times and I still wouldn’t remember it. I knew there was something wrong with my brain. About 5 mos later I was reading through the literature that comes with medication. Rarely, it said, in small print, it could cause memory problems. I quit taking it immediately and within a week I felt the fog lifting. I feel like there has been permanent memory issues but the difference I feel not taking it is incredible. I was terrified I was losing my mind. My cardiologist told me he has seen this in older patients but never in someone my age. He asked me if he could interest me in another statin. I told him I’d rather have a heart attack than go through that again.

    • Tommy Zeus on April 9, 2022 at 5:18 pm

      Research has shown that statins increase the risk for the onset of Alzheimer’s.

      Topomax did/does this to me, Gabapentin was 100x WORSE!!

    • Life is Sweet on July 1, 2022 at 9:32 pm

      I stopped crestor because of reports it causes dementia!! My endocrinologist even said he heard that too. It’s because the lipitor/crestor reduces cholesterol everywhere even the brain. Our brains need the cholesterol. What a situation. No one in Our family had had dementia til my mom. She was on crestor from her 40s on til 85. No thank you. If ripped the waxy cholesterol right outa her brain. The article said we need that in our brain to think straight. Depends on the person I guess.

  17. Anne Marie on April 16, 2022 at 2:27 pm

    Best ever video I’ve seen about Dementia, very easy to understand. We have had it in both sides of the family so I’m keen to do all I can to keep it away. Thank you very much!

  18. Cary Opteris on April 21, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    Dad lost ability to read music, then read text, had loss of smell, became stooped, could no longer see due to brain dysfunction, yet retained a lot of understanding and feelings if people took the time to talk to him or gave him instructions and waited for him to respond. He was still in there and retained emotional connection to the end.

    • jenga181 on May 1, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    A+ on this video Doc.. I am a Teacher who, due to focusing on declining husbands, started losing track myself. I now read out loud daily several chapters and then silently a few chapters. I spend way too much time alone..not conversing with anyone..So many mistakes..I appreciate your thorough presentation and the hope it generates for those of us slipping without realizing it. My first inclination now is to buy a simple math book to refresh my skills there..Many Thanks and keep on suggesting…

    • THE MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE on May 28, 2022 at 8:17 am

      Absent mindedness is not dementia. The Doctor is way off. Medicine is a business.

      I NEVER talk to anyone. I also noticed that if i do, i am very short tempered, ill tempered. I didn’t used to be like this.

  20. halavana1 on June 25, 2022 at 12:43 am

    I’m in my early 60’s, have had 2 concussions I don’t remember (was knocked out) and chemo brain. I noticed a bit of a mental decline during chemo, but it’s improved over the years now that I’m done with it. staying active and cutting out the junk food helps. thanks for the informative video
