Mild Cognitive Impairment

Your Forgetfulness May Be Treatable; Dr. R Bart Sangal Diagnoses Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Do you find it hard to remember peoples’ name?

Are you often misplacing things – like your keys or your glasses?

Is the right word on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t recall it?

Answering “yes” to these questions can be both frustrating and upsetting. But, you think, you can still remember things that happened a long time ago just fine. You are a fine planner and your organizational skills are as good as ever.

All of that may be true. Further, as time marches on, we all become a bit forgetful. That’s part of normal aging.

However, if you are concerned your memory is not what it used to be, you owe it to yourself and your family to find out what’s going on. It may be normal aging. It could be MCI – mild cognitive impairment. There may be a medical cause for your memory loss. MCI is not dementia. However, it may be pre-dementia or pre-Alzheimer’s disease? The sooner you are diagnosed, the sooner you can either be reassured, or get properly treated.
