Dr. Yoga explained that besides aging, there are many factors that can cause dementia or what we often call senility. One of them is from food intake. The sugar content in food or drinks has a significant impact on the emergence of dementia because we currently consume a lot of food or drinks without considering what content is contained in them.
“We drink coffee with sugar, tea with sugar, also packaged drinks usually contain high in sugar and this can be a trigger for dementia,” says dr. Yoga.
However, dr. Yoga also mentioned that it is okay to consume tea, coffee or others as long as it is not consumed every day. “Tea is actually good for consumption, but it’s better without sugar,” he said. In addition to reducing sugar intake in the body, good sleep quality can also affect the emergence of dementia. We can prevent dementia by having good quality sleep and doing exercise regularly.
Before moving to the next Talk Show, there was a presentation of material on the mechanism of examination services at Prof. Soedomo Dental and Oral Hospital UGM. The Talk Show was then continued by drg. Novi Tenripada who explained about the effect of dental health on the emergence of dementia. He explained that cavities or missing teeth can affect the mouth in chewing food so that it can trigger dementia.
“So far, the amount of chewing food does not affect dementia, only cavities and tooth loss that do not get treatment can trigger dementia,” she added.
The next session was a question and answer session among the speakers and the participants. Lastly, the event was closed with the awarding for participants who actively asked questions in the Talk Show.
