Dementia has emerged as the disease people are most reluctant to look for help for, a leading health charity found.
In a separate online survey of 2,358 British adults, YouGov found:
- Some 57% of adults who have had a health problem in the past year have put off seeking help about it, nearly half of them because they thought they would be "making a fuss".
- A further 23% of those who had put off seeking help said it was because they feared it was a serious health problem, such as dementia.
