Recently in increasing frequency it is possible to hear from people not only advanced years, but also belonging to younger on age complaints on often disturbing them: a headache, dizziness, noise whether in ears, whether in the head, sleeplessness. Besides also memory with working capacity considerably decrease...
Many consider all listed symptoms as echoes of a stress, a sleep debt, contrast changes of weather, atmospheric pressure, magnetic storms, fatigue. You should not treat thoughtlessly such here "calls" which are given by our organism, after all all of them can be signs of chronic insufficiency of blood circulation in a brain. Physicians call this disease of distsirkulyatorny encephalopathy. This illness is how serious how to win against it?
What is the distsirkulyatorny encephalopathy?
This vascular disease affecting directly a brain has the chronic, slowly progressing character. As a result of structural changes also functions of a brain are broken. The name difficult aurally can be deciphered so: "distsirkulyatorny" in a literal translation means "with circulation violation", "entsefat" - a brain, "патос" - pathology. It is possible to call a disease still chronic vascular and brain insufficiency or an ischemic disease, but not heart, but a brain. The illness that gradually that in one site of a brain, in other there are microstrokes is dangerous, that is supply with blood and the oxygen and nutrients of fabrics of this site containing in it is broken, such sites can even be lost at all. The risk of developing of a stroke, epileptic attacks increases. In abbreviated form the illness is written with two letters "DE".
Why there is DE?
Allocate two main reasons:
Atherosclerosis – increase of concentration in blood of the person of zhiropodobny connections – triglycerides, lipoproteins of low density, cholesterol. These substances, being besieged on stenochka of blood vessels, accumulate and form so-called "cholesteric plaques". When plaques are condensed, food of nervous cages is broken.
Arterial hypertension – it conducts to local deterioration of a condition of small vessels, there are izvitost, stenoses (narrowings). When aneurisms are formed (even if also small), at pressure jumps there is a risk of their gap. Here in such here way the difficult vascular system of a brain also collapses.
What else diseases and factors promote development and progressing of DE?
The illness is subdivided into three stages, everything depends on expressiveness of symptoms. Each person has duration of the stages replacing each other is various, it depends on extent of defeat of vessels atherosclerosis and weights of a course of a hypertension, habits, emotions, a way of life, the accompanying diseases, heredities …
For an initial stage emergence of a periodic headache, dizzinesses, increased fatigue, irritability, differences of mood, tearfulness, meteosensitivity, sleep disorders, noise in the head of different intensity is characteristic. The person notices that to him will difficult concentrate, to remember where he put this or that important document (a use subject). There are difficulties with concentration of attention, transition just seeing activity to another. Storing of dates, phones, the planned affairs and events worsens.
The second stage – symptoms are even more aggravated. Distinctive feature – the person perfectly remembers that happened to him and his relatives a few years ago, in the childhood, youth, but does not remember at all that occurred this week, whether he this day drank drugs or not, closed a door at an exit from the house or not.

For example, the person wants to tell something, but suddenly becomes silent, does not find proper words to finish thought, the phrase. The word is at the tip of the tongue, and it is impossible to say it.

Emergence of weak-mindedness (dementia) is possible, such patients cease to recognize the family, make inadequate acts. Sometimes, that such people leave the house on walk or in shop, and then are lost.
Symptoms can be accurate, pronounced, frequent or indistinct, periodically shown.
It is necessary to suspect at himself (or the relative) violation of supply of a brain with blood in case you note not less than three symptoms for three months with frequency of repetition more once a week:
the accruing memory impairment;
noise in the head;
fatigue, drowsiness in the afternoon, working capacity deterioration.

to expansion of the narrowed vessel gleam by introduction to it of a special framework – a stent (stenting);
to removal of part of a vessel with further replacement by an artificial limb;
to formation of branches, connection of some vessels among themselves (reconstruction of vascular system of a brain).
