Cognitive Function Q & A

What are the signs of early cognitive decline?

Some of the most common signs of early cognitive decline include:

  • Memory loss, usually starting with short-term memories
  • Repeating the same questions over and over
  • Forgetting well-known people or places
  • Struggling with decision making
  • Unusual mood swings
  • Unusual new behaviors
  • Difficulty with planning
  • Difficulty with executing plans

If you observe these types of cognitive changes in yourself or someone you love, schedule an assessment at BioLounge as soon as possible. By identifying problems in the early stages, you have the best chance to prevent and even reverse cognitive decline. 

What are the causes of early cognitive decline?

Early cognitive decline can happen for a number of reasons, with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia being among the most common. Other possible reasons for early cognitive decline can include stroke, traumatic brain injury, metabolic imbalance, hormone imbalance, and nutritional deficiencies. 

In some cases, multiple factors contribute to early cognitive decline. For example, it isn’t unusual for aging adults to have both nutritional deficiencies and hormone imbalance. 

How do you diagnose cognitive decline?

The BioLounge team employs extensive diagnostics, including blood tests, urinalysis, genetic testing, glucose monitoring, stool testing, and other tests to find the hidden causes of early cognitive decline. Then, they use a functional medicine approach to minimize cognitive decline and maximize outcomes.

How can I boost cognitive function?

BioLounge uses a whole-body functional medicine approach to boosting cognitive function. The team of skilled specialists corrects nutritional deficiencies, restores healthy hormone levels, creates customized nutrition plans, and tailors pharmaceutical and nutraceutical supplements to boost cognitive function.

In many cases, these measures can prevent early cognitive decline from worsening. Righting imbalances within the body may even help the brain work on a whole new level, allowing for improved focus, concentration, reasoning ability, and more. 

Because functional medicine emphasizes whole-body wellness, you’ll also experience significant physical benefits from treatment. You can expect to feel better, experience less chronic fatigue, and have more energy to enjoy life.
