Starting around the age of 60-65, we start to consider forgetfulness to be increasingly “normal”. We have trouble finding the right word, we can’t remember the names of our closest kin, or we forget objects or specific details, but when should we start to consider theses lapses to be more serious? Can these oversights really be considered a normal age-associated process or could they actually be the start of a degenerative mental disease?
What is the goal of this checkup?
To check for, and in the event of a positive diagnosis, to treat, diseases that could lead to memory loss: from ordinary symptoms such as lack of attention, depression, anxiety, stress, vitamin deficiency or endocrine disease, to more serious diseases such as brain tumors, arteriosclerosis, hypertension or Alzheimer’s disease.
Who is it for?
People between the ages of 60 and 65 who show the following symptoms:
- lack of attention
- memory loss even if only temporary
- loss of mental agility
- mental disorders
We recommend having the Memory Checkup done to all those who experience any of the symptoms described above. Although it may be difficult to win the battle against this type of disease, we can improve the quality of life of the patient if the disease is detected during its initial phase.
- Complete blood test
- Cranial MRI scan
- Full psychological and neurological assessment
- Neurologist visit
- At the scheduled time of your visit, you will need to come (without having eaten beforehand) to the center where your checkup is to be carried out.
- Once the visit has been concluded, those tests requiring fasting will be conducted.
Delivery of Results
Two days later, you will be scheduled for another visit so that we can make the delivery of the final report as well as the appropriate medical recommendations.
