Alzheimer's Disease

Memory Loss and Smelly Sweat

04/04/2003

Question:

What can be done about memory loss? I have been to a doctor and because I am 40 he does not really address this problem. But it seems to be becoming worse. What would cause a man to develop a bad odor when he sweats for the last month? Is there anything he may have to be tested for?

Answer:

Dr. Beversdorf has responded to your first question. "It is impossible to know without some sort of evaluation. I would suggest some form of neuropsychological testing in order to detect the significance of any memory loss and proceed from there." The second question is not in the scope of our expertise. You might want to try submitting it to skin care. Perhaps they can help you. If you have further questions regarding memory loss, feel free to contact us again.
