In brief: Perhaps, it depends

I don't have enough info to know in your situation.
There are many causes of dementia. Low white count may signify chronic viral infection or infections like Lyme which can cause dementia. Low D is associated with impaired immunity, inflammation & increased risk of autoimmunity,all of which can aggravate dementia.Check B12 levels, thyroid, heavy metal toxicity etc. Consult an integrative MD or ND.
