Signs that You May Be Experiencing Memory Loss

Memory issues affect 1 in 9 adults over age 45. Because it can be challenging to diagnose memory loss, you could go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years and not get the treatment you need.

At PharmXhealthOne, Age Management Medicine Physician Rolando Alvarez, MD, and our team of nurse practitioners offer the Brainview® neural scan system, which can diagnose memory loss quickly and accurately. 

This breakthrough system can detect early signs of cognitive decline years before symptoms appear. Keep reading to learn about some of the warning signs of memory loss, and how Brainview can help diagnose the root cause.

Signs that you may have memory loss

Forgetting dates and times might not seem like much at first, since we often get distracted by other things around us. However, if these slips continue, it can be a sign of memory issues.

The inability to retrace your steps is a sign that something may be wrong with your memory. Other signs include regularly misplacing things, such as your keys or wallet.

Cognitive impairment can also affect the ability to plan and solve problems. For some people, this means difficulty following recipes or completing familiar tasks. It could also mean taking longer and longer to complete them, even if they're not physically demanding.

New issues finding words is another early warning sign of memory loss. You may also have trouble joining or following a conversation. While it's normal for this to happen occasionally as we get older, a clue is if you find yourself using the wrong word entirely, such as calling a cat an elephant.

The basics of Brainview testing

Cognitive impairment can occur at any age, but the risk increases with age. There's an increasing need for an effective way to assess the underlying causes of memory loss, and that's where Brainview testing comes in. This computerized diagnostic test can accurately assess memory loss in a matter of minutes.

The Brainview system measures the health of your brain using electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiogram (ECG) and visual processing, as well as auditory information to diagnose cognitive functioning.

The system then provides easy-to-understand reports on how well your brain is working. This information then allows Dr. Alvarez to tailor treatments specifically to your needs.

The benefits of Brainview testing

The earlier you detect a decline in cognitive functioning, the better. And that's why Brainview testing is so beneficial. Among the many things Brainview testing can do, it can help:

  • Assess potential issues years before symptoms occur
  • Aid in diagnosing issues when they do appear
  • Predict who's at risk of developing dementia
  • Detect concussions
  • Assess ADHD symptoms

The ability to think clearly and make good decisions is imperative for daily life. And Brainview testing can help you do just that, now and into the future, by providing a roadmap of what's going on inside your brain.

Brainview testing is a tremendous leap forward in the early detection of memory loss. If you're experiencing signs of memory loss or are concerned about cognitive decline, book an appointment online or over the phone with PharmXhealthOne today.
