Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Stroke / Vascular dementia
Frontal Temporal dementia
Alzheimer's is only one of more than 80 different types of dementia.
"In a study consisting of more than 180,000 male veterans aged 55 and older, those diagnosed with PTSD had nearly 2-fold the risk of developing dementia syndromes such as Alzheimer disease, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy Body dementia, vascular dementia, and senile dementia compared to those without PTSD.
C-PTSD can contribute to memory difficulties and gaps through fragmented or dissociative memories, avoidance and suppression, altered memory encoding and retrieval, memory disturbances related to dissociation, and an impact on attention and concentration.
