The contents offered on the website of Kompetenz statt Demenz ( provide general information on health-related topics, in particular on diagnostic, therapeutic and prevention possibilties. Please note the following points:

No replacement of medical advice and treatment

The purpose of the information offered is solely to increase the level of awareness of the population on various health-related topics. This can not and should not replace individual specialist advice from physicians on the subject areas.

In particular, the diagnosis and treatment or therapy of diseases and/or other physical or mental disorders requires the involvement of qualified physicians. Self-diagnosis and/or the decision for or against treatments or therapies without the involvement of a doctor is dangerous and can cause serious damage to health or even death.

The website of Kompetenz statt Demenz also includes the representation of the results of scientific research, studies, and surveys with statistical evaluations. Please note that statistics are generally not suitable for predicting the actual occurrence or non-occurrence of an event or outcome (eg the success of a treatment). They alone reflect a degree of probability.

Statistics can be included as important information in decision-making, but are not intended to be the sole criterion and can not substitute individual counseling by a doctor on a case-by-case basis.
