Title: Interesting 4 Facts about Alzheimer's Disease


1
We Can Handle the Truth The Facts on Alzheimers
Studies now show us that over 44 million people
currently have Alzheimer's. Even though
Alzheimer's disease is extremely prevalent, it is
still surrounded by countless myths and
misconceptions. Here is a quick look at four
Alzheimer's facts that everyone should know.
2
An Early Diagnosis Matters
Just as with many other serious medical
conditions, catching Alzheimer's early can have a
dramatic impact on a patient's quality of life.
While there is currently no cure, the management
of this disease has improved by quite a bit in
recent years. When this disorder is caught in its
earliest stages, patients have a wide variety of
tactics they can use to slow their cognitive
decline and minimize the side effects. Most
specialists generally suggest sweeping lifestyle
changes including mental stimulation, regular
exercise, and a healthy diet.
3
It Is Much More Than Memory Loss
Forgetfulness might be the most common symptom of
Alzheimers, but this disorder affects much more
than one's memories. According to a report
published by the Dartmouth Institute for Health
Policy and Clinical Practice, almost all
Alzheimer's patients have additional medical
conditions that complicate their treatments and
reduce their quality of life. Many of those who
have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's have
diet-related disorders such as diabetes and high
blood pressure. They might also develop issues
with their senses including hearing and smelling.
4
Alzheimer's Is Tied to Poor General Health
We currently do not know exactly what causes
Alzheimer's, but doctors have discovered that it
is closely tied to one's general health and
well-being. Obese patients and those with
diabetes develop Alzheimer's at much higher
rates. We have also found that a sedentary
lifestyle can contribute to this disorder as
well. Many researchers believe that the narrowing
of blood vessels could be one of the reasons why
these conditions increase a patient's risk of
Alzheimer's.
5
Family Members Suffer as Well
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's can be
incredibly draining, and that is why many
caregivers suffer from caregiver burnout or
caregiver stress. These individuals often
report much higher levels of stress with very
little attention given to their own health. This
is why it is suggested that all caregivers create
a support team that can help them alleviate their
stress and break their isolation. There are also
face-to-face support groups designed specifically
for those who care for older patients in the
latest stages of progressive diseases such as
Alzheimer's.
