Many conditions can cause memory loss, including:
Alcohol, smoking, and some infections, such as HIV, can also be to blame.
Dr. Reiss will look for these and other factors at your first evaluation. You may be predisposed to the progressive loss of memory that occurs with age, known as dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most well-known causes of dementia. Approximately 60%-80% of dementia can be attributed to Alzheimer’s.
Menopause can cause short lapses in memory. When you stop producing as much estrogen, pregnenolone, DHEA, and thyroid hormone, you may have irregularities in your cortisol levels. Cortisol is a steroid hormone that helps your body respond to stress. These irregularities can interrupt your brain’s normal function and lead to short-term memory loss.
Thyroid issues — when your thyroid gland produces too much or too little of the thyroid hormones — can also contribute to memory issues.
Dr. Reiss may offer bioidentical hormone therapy, multiple nutrients, and peptides, if he finds that a hormone imbalance is likely responsible for your memory loss. Bioidentical hormones restore your normal hormone levels using hormones derived from plant ingredients that match the exact chemical structure of those produced by your own body. Bioidentical hormones can include estrogen, as well as other hormones that Dr. Reiss determines you may need to resolve memory challenges and other issues.
We treat memory loss with step by step, individualized programs that consider specific deficiencies that you have. We will pick the best nutrients, hormones, and peptides that will suit your unique needs, based on our discoveries during your initial consultation.
