Lecture: assessments, medication among tools to combat dementia [cached]

Dr. Debra Bynum, an associate professor in the Division of Geriatric Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, recently gave an excellent talk about troubles in thinking as well as memory loss in the elderly. Her talk was part of the Medical Update lecture series at Carolina Meadows.

She emphasized mild cognitive impairment.
Dr. Bynum pointed out that no current treatment makes dementia better in the long term. A psychotropic medication such as resperidal can for a short term, but the medication can produce major side effects. Some medications like cholinesterease inhilutas, memantine, or donepezil may slow it a little but never reverse cognitive impairment. They all have side effects and can be costly. Vitamin E, Ginko biloba, fish oil, estrogen and NSAIDs don't appear to help at all.
Dr. Bynum gave a thorough, memorable presentation about minds becoming imperfect.
