  • Should 90 year old mother with dementia travel abroad for 6 weeks?

    Traveling depends on the severity of dementia. Mostly demented patients when moved away from the regular home environment tend to be confused and show exacerbation of symptoms like memory loss, inability to perform tasks that they would normally be able to perform. In case of mild dementia where the functional impairment is minimal, traveling should be ok. A bigger concern in that case would be a recurrence of TIA / stroke or other medical issues. Patients with chronic medical conditions should always have arrangements (like medical insurence and /or enough finances) to get medical help abroad if needed. READ MORE

  • Why does my mom feel breathless even after a bath?

    There could be a number of reasons for breathlessness. To pin point the reason a more detailed history and examination is required. This could be something as simple as reconditioning or as critical as congestive heart failure. Deconditioning is muscular and physical weakness secondary to the lack of exercise and is very common in elderly. It is important to rule out any cardiac issue. Diabetic patients are at risk for cardiac problems. She will need a complete evaluation with her PCP first and then if needed be referred to the cardiologist. READ MORE

  • Are changing bowel patters a sign of IBS?

    Changing bowel patterns can be a sign of IBS. IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion. There are no tests to confirm IBS. Mostly, it is associated with anxiety or depression, and in periods of stress or depression, the symptoms exacerbate. READ MORE

  • What is the best way to treat constant constipation in elderly?

    First of all, she should have a work-up to exclude bowel diseases like colon cancer, polyps, etc. Usually, a colonoscopy is done for that. Once it is established that it is just chronic constipation, she can do a number of things. Some examples are: warm prune juice 2-3 times a day, regularly taking Miralax, Sennakot OTC. I suggest that she starts with one remedy and do it regularly. The most common issue with chronic constipation is that patients do not continue the remedy on a daily basis. READ MORE
