Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well I would like to tell you one thing that since the patient is ahving mutiple problems it will be very difficult to have set goals . I think you need to see a physician and get him thoroughly assessed . He should get HbA1c tested for diabetes and strict dietary control . For dementia no diagnostic test is there , a MMSE will be required although . For osteoarthritis quadriceps exercises are recommended . The extent of joint damage needs to be assessed on X Ray Knees . For depression and anxiety a psychiatric consultation will be advisable because any treatment can be given after assessing the patient in person. Take care. Dr. Shruti
