Many believe that the most common form of it is Alzheimer’s, but in fact the most common form is “Mixed Dementia”, that is a combination of Alzheimer’s and Cerebral Vascular Disease.

Mixed Dementia is often caused by reduced blood flow to the brain caused by a stroke. Often times these strokes are undetectable Sometimes these strokes are not even noticeable. If preventative efforts are not made, over time, they can become stronger and more frequent. These strokes, possibly in combination with other risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart rhythm abnormalities, sleep apnea, poor diet and lack of exercise can lead to serious problems both physically and cognitively (dementia).
