brain angiopathy

I was diagnosed with brain angiopathy. I don't know what this is. Anyone here have this or know what it is?

Re: brain angiopathy

I am not sure if "brain angiopathy" is the same as Cerebal amyloid angiopathy, but I would assume it is the same thing...this is when proteins build up on the walls of the arteries of the brain. This can increase the risk for stroke..

How was it diagnosed? What did the doctors tell you to do about it?

Re: brain angiopathy

It was diagnosed with an MRI. On my test results it's called sequelae of microvascular angiopathy. I have not seen the specialist yet. I'm scheduled to see him this week.

Re: brain angiopathy

Dear marip1,

Not to scare you, but sequelae of microvascular angiopathy is narrowing of the blood vessels, which reduces the supply of blood to the brain tissue causing dementia, loss of memory, clots can cause heart attack, kidney failure from ingesting too much sugar, and stroke from blood clots in the brain.

Those things can be reversed. The solution is to change the diet, start an exercise program, and eliminate smoking or and alcohol (which is like drinking pure sugar).

I have my own bad habits, and I'm glad that you posted because I need to pay better attention and change my own diet.

Re: brain angiopathy

What about medication? Is medication given for it? And what doctor treats this? What specialist?

Re: brain angiopathy

Dear marip1,

It is never enough to depend on medication or doctors. You need to make healthy changes to increase your health, too

Re: brain angiopathy

I had seen a neurologist today and I mentioned about the
microvascular angiopathy and told me it's nothing to worry about. It's due to aging. Isn't a blood thinner needed to reduce the chance of having a stroke? He didn't mention anything about watching the diet,more exercise, no smoking and no drinking.
Are neurologists the doctors to see on this brain condition? The main reason I saw him today was about my meningioma.
