Memory loss refers to unusual forgetfulness, such as not remembering recent or past events, or the ability to recall old memories. Memory loss can be acute and clear up with time or a chronic problem that gets worse instead of better.
If you’re feeling a bit more forgetful than usual or you’re experiencing foggy brain, the team at Age Management MD can conduct an examination to see what’s going and then develop a personalized treatment plan to improve memory and brain health.
Aging is a common cause of memory loss. An estimated 50% of the elderly develop dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, which are chronic conditions that cause a general mental decline in memory and cognitive abilities.
Other causes of memory loss include:
