Understanding Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome
Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome is a neurologically-based condition caused by a deficiency in thiamine, a nutrient required by the brain. The condition commonly occurs as a result of heavy and chronic alcohol consumption or opioid use.
The symptoms can range from minor to severe, including confusion, disorientation, difficulty with speech and movement, and memory loss. Left untreated, Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome can lead to irreversible brain damage or death.
