Memory loss

You may be worried that you’ve become noticeably more forgetful or confused. Perhaps you’re struggling to remember things that happened recently, even though you can easily remember things from long ago, or you’ve been getting confused in a familiar place, or have trouble remembering names and following conversations.


You may be worried these are early signs of dementia, but most of us experience these things from time to time. These can be symptoms of many common conditions, such as stress, depression, vitamin deficiencies, thyroid problems, constipation, dehydration or urinary tract infections.

If you’re worried about memory loss you should talk to your doctor to find out what’s causing it. This can either set your mind at rest or allow you to get the help and support you need. A diagnosis of dementia won’t make things worse but it can help you plan for your future.
