Posted on Oct 29, 2015 2:02:44 PM by healtheo360

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most prevalent forms of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.

The symptoms develop over time, slowly, and get worse as you age. The symptoms can be so severe that they can prevent you from accomplishing daily tasks. This disease is a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities. It accounts for about 60-80 percent of dementia cases.

One of the most common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease is the increased difficulty of alzheimer’s diseaseremembering old or new information. As it gets worse over time, it spreads through your brain causing disorientation, mood and behavior changes, deepening confusion about events, time and place, unfounded suspicions about family members, friends and professionals.

Today, Alzheimer’s disease is at the forefront of biomedical research. Currently, there is no cure for this disease. Doctors and researchers are working to uncover the mystery behind Alzheimer’s and other related dementias. Most of the research, of what we know now, has been acquired over the past 15 years. But we still have a ways to go before we see results for a permanent cure.
