Scientists claim to find main cause of dementia
Dementia is a mental illness that affects millions of people across the world.
Scientists have claimed that they have identified the major cause of dementia.
This discovery can make a huge impact on the treatment and diagnosis of mental illnesses. The discovery has been made by an international team of scientists.
The team confirms that the build-up of urea in the brain to very high levels can cause brain damage and this can cause dementia.
An earlier study had also indicated the link high amount of urea in the brain and Alzheimer’s disease.
The discovery will help faster diagnosis
This means that doctors can now diagnose the dementia symptoms by getting the urea levels tested. This can help get timely treatment for dementia.
A urea build up can be caused when the Kidneys fail to remove the toxins from the body.
Scientists are now researching the cause of the high urea build up that affects brain function.
