Vascular Dementia: is a general term describing problems with reasoning, planning, judgment, memory and other thought processes caused by brain damage from impaired blood flow to the brain.

Overview

Vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s are often confused because of similar overlapping symptoms, but they are NOT the same.

For example, one of THE DEFINING characteristics of Alzheimer’s are “tangles” in the brain composed of beta-amyloid plaques.

Plaques are the product of inflammation and poor blood circulation to the brain ALONG WITH elevated blood sugar levels which result in “varnished” [glazed-over] brain receptors which are supposed to regulate pancreatic production of insulin based on circulating levels of the regulatory hormone, leptin.

Excess accumulation of FERRITIN IRON plays an important role in brain dysfunction [think inflammation and electrical short-circuiting of brain tissue/neurons]. To learn more, see Special Insights, How Iron Toxicity Affects Your Health by clicking the ARCHIVE TAB below.
