Confusion or disorientation can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'generally fatal'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose confusion or disorientation, we could:
|Low Carbohydrate Diet Consequences||22%||Unlikely|
|Alzheimer's Disease||1%||Ruled out|
|Mercury Toxicity||0%||Ruled out|
|Epstein-Barr Virus||0%||Ruled out|
Do you suffer from episodes of confusion or disorientation?

Dehydration reduces blood flow to the brain and therefore also the amount of oxygen that it receives, which can cause confusion.
