mainly it happens progressively, but may show up in some terms ''abruptly''.
Treatment: depends on the cause.
I have no data about her previous social habits؛ does she was a smoker? Cholesterol? Triglicerides? Cardiac electrical disturbances? Hypertensive? Any previous head infection?
Sometimes no treatment (for example in leukodystrophy, amyloidosis, prion degenerative ds.. ....)
Medications for stabilization:
Medication to support:
2- Vimpozine Memory complex (9substances including Vimpocetine)
Medication which may also help especialy incase of diabetes (but not in amyloidosis):
stem Cells: not proven to be too much effective in elderly. But it always depends individually on the case and causes.
