I found an article in some magazine about Korsakoff's syndrome. I read there that person with Korsakoff's syndrome displays difficulty with memory because of deficiency of thiamine. Also I read that in the United States, the most common cause of thiamine deficiency is alcoholism. Now I’m asking how to prevent Korsakoff's syndrome?

If you know what exactly Korsakoff's syndrome is, you know then that, certainly, one of the most important forms of prevention involves treating the underlying alcohol addiction. Prevention depends on either maintaining a diet with a sufficient intake of thiamine, or supplementing an inadequate diet with vitamin preparations. Good luck!
