Are you worried your brain fog is early demntia, an overall term used to describe a decline in your brain health.
This can include the loss of your mental ability to think, remember and/or learn. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and accounts for 60-80 percent of all cases.
In fact, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, for a woman in her 60s, the estimated lifetime risk for developing Alzheimer’s is one in six. For breast cancer it is one in 11.
Early studies suggested taking estrogen causesd an increase in dementia, but the patients who received the estrogen were over 65. It’s a very different story for women who begin taking estrogen close to the time of menopause.
