Q:

How does lack of sleep affect food choices?

A:

Sleep deprivation, or lack of sleep, can impact the choices you make when fuelling your body with food. Studies have shown that people tend to eat more the day after a sleepless night, and tend to choose less healthy foods. Since sleep issues have been linked to weight gain and obesity, you should have any sleep disturbances checked by your family doctor.

Are there medications for dementia?

Q:

What is the risk of polypharmacy?

A:

In many elderly patients, there are multiple medications being taken at the same time to control one or more health issues. The more medications a person is taking, the more potential there is for complications or interactions between the drugs. It is important to share all of your medications (even over-the-counter) with your family doctor to ensure you are not putting yourself at risk.
