PATIENTS FEEDBACK

What Our Clients Have To Say

I have been consulting the doctors at Cadabam’s for over 6 months now for my father who has dementia. The doctors and staff at the hospital are very polite and kind and have provided excellent support and care right from day one. They not only explain the treatment plan thoroughly but also take out the time to make sure we understand complications and side effects that could come along the way. If you or your loved one is dealing with any mental health issues, I highly recommend Cadabam’s.

Types

The 5 most common types of dementia are –

  • Alzheimer’s Disease. This is the most common type, caused by abnormal build-up of proteins called tau tangles and amyloid plaques.
  • Frontotemporal dementia. This is a rare form that occurs as a result of accumulation of the proteins tau and TDP-43.
  • Vascular dementia. This type is caused due to damage to blood vessels of the brain or interruption of flow of oxygen and blood to the brain.
  • Lewy body dementia. Lewy bodies, which are the protein alpha-synuclein, get abnormally deposited to lead to this type.
  • Mixed dementia. This includes a combination of 2 or more different dementia types.

Causes

Changes in the brain can explain some types of dementia. Rare genetic mutations can be the cause for a relatively low number of dementia patients. However, the underlying causes in most cases are unknown.
