Facts About Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia affecting the memory, behavior, and cognitive functions of a person. It is an age-related disease that can progress over time if not diagnosed in its early stages. In the United States, 5.8 million Americans who exhibit the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are 60 years old and older.

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Alzheimer's. Patients require close supervision from guardians and caregivers to support their daily needs, especially those who have severe symptoms such as complete memory loss and urinary and bladder incontinence.

Further clinical trials are still ongoing to find the most effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. One of the focus studies of Santos Research Institute in Tampa provides patients with newly developed treatments for Alzheimer’s disease during their participation in clinical trials. The latest cutting-edge medical research seeks additional options to improve patients' quality of life.

Facts About Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Symptoms

  • Memory Loss

For patients with Alzheimer’s disease, slowly losing their memory is a sad expectation. More than just being forgetful, the symptoms involve repeating conversations,  misplacing objects, getting lost, and forgetting the names of loved ones.

  • Changes in Behavior

Alzheimer’s disease causes patients to experience unexpected shifts in their moods and personality. These changes include irritability, moodiness, detachment from society, loss of interest in hobbies, and inappropriate behavior.

  • Cognitive Problems

Inability to think, comprehend, and decide even simple matters are signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Patients have a hard time processing and understanding basic information about themselves and the people around them. There are times when they get confused about past and present situations. For advanced Alzheimer’s, patients are going to have difficulty in deciding for themselves.

  • Poor Communication

Aside from thinking and understanding, Alzheimer’s can also affect the ability of a person to communicate clearly. They also face difficulty in writing and spelling words.

Alzheimer’s has no cure and is an unpreventable disease. However, maintaining a balance between your physical and mental well-being lowers your risk of acquiring the disease.
