In brief: Nerve diseases

Which disease you have on mind? Just don't get old! i guess the disease that comes to my mind is B12 deficiency which may be treated.
It causes anemia, peripheral neuropathy and dementia. Check your levels during your yearly physical exam or if you have symptoms suggestive of the above. Other neurological conditions cannot be prevented.
