Hello all, this is my first post, I'm after some advice if possible please. I am concerned about my mum who is in her mid 70s. Within the last few weeks myself and other family members have noticed she doesn't seem herself. She seems almost depressed but more worrying seems to be quite forgetful and acting slightly out of character. She was unable to spell some words that she wouldn't have had a problem with before and generally seems to not remember certain things. A doctor has said she has thyroid problems, I need to get more details of this, but our first thought was the onset of dementia, although we don't have a history of this in our family. We will of course be making an appointment with the doctor again but just after some thoughts on thyroid issues and if it can cause memory issues will they be permanent. My mother has various health issues, she is Type 2 diabetic and takes statins and has also been told her body makes too much calcium. She has a fatty liver but doesn't drink and isn't overweight, if anything she is underweight. She also has arthritis.
Any feedback or advice would be most appreciated. Thank you.
