Women would mainly be at higher risk of dementia than men. According to these forecasts, the countries most affected will be those of North Africa and the Middle East, of which Qatar and Bahrain will be prevalent, while Eastern Europe and Asia will be the countries with the least cases in absolute.
This dramatic increase will be given a number of risk factors capable of causing irreparable damage to brain cells. Among these factors are for example obesity, hyperglycemia, but also depression.
Since dementia is not necessarily age-related, it does not only appear with aging and there are many causes or conditions that favor it. Investing in prevention it is what experts call upon in order to avoid what researchers estimate and at the same time provide patients with dementia and their families with all the support they need.
