Elderly people tend to give up even if they often fall down or find it difficult to walk because they are too old. The key point is the awareness of people close to you.
Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus is a condition in which cerebrospinal fluid (cerebrospinal fluid) accumulates too much and puts pressure on the brain. The main symptoms are gait disturbance, frequent urination, and dementia. Treatment of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus improves symptoms such as susceptibility to falls and urinary incontinence, even if it is complicated with Alzheimer’s dementia, etc., thereby reducing nursing care burden and improving quality of life To do.
However, there are other conditions that cause symptoms such as difficulty walking, being too close to the bathroom, and being dizzy, and older people often do not realize they have idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus.
