I am 26, and I noticed that I am losing my memory, especially short-term. I wanted to know how early is too early when it comes to memory loss?
Answer:There are many causes of memory loss. At your young age one may think of thyroid disorders, metabolic disorders, vitamin deficiencies, inflammatory conditions, and depression to name a few. It is important to ask your doctor about your problems and they can investigate. Good luck.
