Alcohol & Dementia
Excessive alcohol consumption over a lengthy time period can lead to brain damage and may increase your risk of developing dementia. Alcohol-related dementia, as the name suggests, is a form of dementia related to the excessive drinking of alcohol. This affects memory, learning, and other mental functions. Korsakoff’s syndrome and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome are particular forms of alcohol-related brain injury that may be related to alcohol-related dementia.
