Skin. It’s your body’s largest organ, its first line of defense. It tells the story of your life. The skin acts as a tattletale—announcing to the world your physical and emotional health. Its very appearance changes based on the natural hormones produced by the body, as well as the elements and chemicals to which it is exposed.
Many conditions have symptoms similar to dementia. Strokes, depression, excessive long-term alcohol consumption, infections, hormonal disorders, nutritional deficiencies and brain tumors can cause dementia-like symptoms. Many of these conditions can be treated, so it is important to differentiate dementia from other conditions.
