In brief: Reversible Dementias

By definition, dementia is a neurological disorder with progressive loss of cognitive function.
Therefore you can not rid yourself of dementia. Certain medical conditions present as a dementia and when the medical condition is treated the dementia resolves. An example: major depressive disorder can cause a dementia like state called pseudo dementia. Treat the depression and the dementia resolves.
