Urinary Tract Infections in Senior Citizens.
Most people don’t realize that an asymptomatic UTI causes dementia/nervous breakdown symptoms in older adults. I’ve had 2 friends now, presenting as having major mental health issues, and with a Urinary Analysis, and doses of antibiotics, they returned to normal. A drop in sodium can mimic the same symptoms.
Before you accept a ‘dementia diagnosis’, get tested for an organic infection of the body.
From agingcare.com Since elders’ bodies respond differently to infection, it is important to look for different signs and symptoms. One tell-tale symptom of UTIs in the elderly is often mistaken for the early stages of dementia or Alzheimer's disease, according to National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Indicators of infection in seniors include the following:
Confusion or delirium
Other unusual behavioral changes
Poor motor skills or loss of coordinationDizzinessFalling
Acute behavioral and /or functional changes are often the only symptoms that present in the elderly, so it is crucial to keep an eye out for these sudden changes in behavior and mental state.
