Question What causes constipation in people with Alzheimer's disease? Janice Oklahoma Answer Constipation can occur in people with Alzheimer's disease. But it is most likely due to a side effect of medication or an underlying medical condition such as dehydration — and not due to the Alzheimer's itself. If unrecognized and untreated, constipation can worsen behavioral problems, such as physical aggression, in people with Alzheimer's disease. Ironically, medications used to treat these behavioral problems can worsen constipation. Increasing fluids usually helps relieve constipation. However, frequent and persistent constipation should be evaluated by a doctor. Often, the cause of constipation is treatable. Treatment may include: Increased physical activity Changes in diet Medications to reduce constipation Constipation is a common complication of some other neurological disorders — such as Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia — which affect the nerves involved in digestion.

Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

He had 6 th nerve palsy. Cause is unclear, any headache? Because if there is any headache and 6 th nerve palsy means ther is increased pressure inside the brain- so if MRI is normal you have to doe the fluid analysis from the brain- CSF study. If he is improving it is better, or get admitted under neurology and get the CSF study done. Current treatment as such is OK,

Hi lybrate user, all these symptons including excessive levels of cortisol, indicating cushing's syndrom. For this you can try allopathic medicines initially to get immediate improvement but that will not be a permanent solution. So, you can opt homeopathic medicines paralally, on long time intake of these medicines you can reduce the dosage of allopthic drugs n later permanently with observing improvement in your condition, symptoms n suffering wise, gradually can tapper the allopthic drugs. But in homeo, you need to continue medication for quite long time as its related to harmonal imbalance,&a kind of auto immune dissorder/metobolism.
