Experts still don't know what "triggers" dementia in the human body. What is considered certain is that the patient's medical history plays a role. In other words, if someone has someone with dementia in their close family environment, they have a greater risk of developing the disease themselves.

Experts from Johns Hopkins University have revealed the 11 main symptoms in the early stages of dementia, which could help in its early diagnosis.
