Risks Of Brain Disorders
Brain disorders can lead to severe health conditions depending on the genetics, environment in which person is living and other medical history of the patient. Risks are higher for patients of older age.
How to diagnose brain disorders?
Doctors generally study fluid from brain and spinal cord to find out if there are any infections in brain, bleeding or any other abnormal developments in brain.
Tests on vision, hearing and body balance are also performed to diagnose neurological issues. A thorough diagnosis of brain may also be needed by doctor to find out issues using imaging technologies such as MRI scanning, ct scan or PET scan. Cost of MRI scan is highest compared to other imaging technologies.
Some of the brain diseases are not very complicated and people live normal life in spite of having the disorder but other brain disorder that happen because of some neurodegenerative diseases or traumatic brain injuries, have no cure.
Since there is no cure to some of these diseases, treatment involves training of the patient to effectively live with the disease and behave normally. Patients with these diseases are also trained to live on their own by building up their confidence.
