In brief: Memory loss in 50s
Memory loss in midlife can have a number of potential causes.
Some of those causes are easily treatable such as vitamin b deficiency. Although it is very uncommon, alzheimer disease also may affect people in midlife. If you are having memory problems at a young age, i recommend talking to your doctor.
