How Do You Evaluate Memory Loss?

When an individual begins to show signs of memory loss, a physician’s greatest challenge is often discovering the underlying cause of symptoms. Behavioral evaluations (including self-report questionnaires such as MoCA and MMSE, effort-based computerized testing, and psychological evaluations) and laboratory tests (such as APOE genotyping and biochemical labs such as blood, urine, and CSF analysis) can be useful in developing a diagnosis in cases of advanced symptom presentation1. But how useful are these tools in assessing cases of early memory loss? Are they capable of detecting dementia early, before disease advancement, so that the physician has the opportunity to implement a successful treatment intervention?

Painless and rather instant Results

Laser Lipo, Ltd with headquarters in England has developed an advanced body contouring device which directly targets the adipocyte cells leaving the other cells unaffected. Laser diodes using a wavelength of 660 nm creates a photo-chemical reaction in the cell membrane stimulating the cells to temporarily open a pore, and very naturally to release water, glycerol, and free fatty acids. The fat cells then shrink in size. The excess fat is then removed safely through the lymphatic system and the body’s natural metabolic process, thus creating a similar reaction as if the person was exercising. This device allows practitioners to target the areas where patients want the fat gone without any discomfort or downtime.
