As they say, knowledge is power. This saying also applies to our health. Having a knowledge of the warning signs of some particular diseases can be powerful enough to help treat and prevent some diseases from causing more harm to the body or death in severe cases.
Experience from doctors shows that many of the diseases that have caused severe harm or death to patients have shown warning signs that might have been taken for granted or treated with levity.
Although some diseases may not show warning signs until they become severe in patients, however, the case study dementia often shows some early signs that may seem feeble or vague yet, if they are taken for granted they may cause severe brain damage that may increase the risk of other diseases or cause death.
