The basics
  • Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia , a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 50 to 70 percent of dementia cases.

Alzheimer's is not the only cause of memory loss. Many people have trouble with memory — this does NOT mean they have Alzheimer's. In fact, most do not. There are many different causes of memory loss. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms, it is best to visit a doctor so the cause can be determined.

  • Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging , although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older. But Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Up to 5 percent of people with the disease have early-onset Alzheimer's (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s.

    Alzheimer's disease
    Published by Bupa's health information team, April 2009. This factsheet is for people who have Alzheimer's disease, or who would like information about it. Alzheimer's disease is a slowly progressing form of dementia. Over time, Alzheimer's disease gradually damages the function and structure of the brain, which affects a person's ability to remember, talk and carry out routine daily activities.
    About Alzheimer's disease
    Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. Dementia is the term used to describe a range of conditions that cause a deterioration of brain function, resulting in memory loss, reduced language skills and behavioural and emotional problems. Of the 700,000 people with dementia in the UK, around 400,000 have Alzheimer's disease. Most people who develop dementia are over 65. There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease, although research is underway to identify the causes of the disease and develop new treatments. Life expectancy often depends on how quickly symptoms progress. The period of time between diagnosis and the person dying can be anything from 18 months to 15 years, but is usually seven to 10 years. Most people with Alzheimer's disease need full-time care within five to 10 years. Often the cause of death in a person with Alzheimer's disease is another illness, such as an infection or stroke.

Alzheimer's Disease Statistics
Did you know?
  • Alzheimer's affects up to 10 percent of people 65 and over and increasing to 50 percent at 85 and older. Direct and indirect costs of AD and other dementias amount to more than $172 billion annually. Texas ranks third in the number of Alzheimer's disease cases and second in the number of AD deaths. A new person develops Alzheimer's disease every seventy seconds this is projected to increase to every 33 seconds by 2050.

Information on Alzheimer's Disease Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by impairment of memory and a disturbance in at least one other thinking function (for example, language or perception of reality). Many scientists believe that AD results from an increase in the production or accumulation of a specific protein (beta-amyloid protein) that leads to nerve cell death. Loss of nerve cells in strategic brain areas, in turn, causes deficits in the neurotransmitters, which are the brain's chemical messengers. Read More About Alzheimer's Disease

If you have any question or comments on any information or on the web site itself, please E-mail me by clicking the letter icon here. Origin AD was first discovered accidentally. In this section, I am going to tell when and what were the symptoms of the patient when AD was first discovered. Prevalence According to some statistics, dementia related diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's diseases have the 4th highest dead rate among all the disease. This is section, I am going to show you how badly this disease is widely spread. Causes The finding of causes to AD was a hard effort. After a half of century in research, scientists have discovered some of the causes to this disease. Diagnosis Due to the technology advances in these few centuries as Dr. Budinger illustrated, medical doctors can use high tech equipment to diagnose AD. I will tell you some of the ways. Prevention Since there is still no cures for AD, prevention becomes very essential in fighting this disease. I am going to introduce some of the ways that can reduce the risk of getting this disease.

On this page, you will find the following:
Stage 1 (Mild):
Some specific examples of behaviors that people exhibit in this mild stage include:
  • Getting lost
  • Difficulty managing money and paying bills
  • Repetitive questions and conversations
  • Taking longer than usual to finish routine daily tasks
  • Poor judgment
  • Losing things or misplacing them in odd places
  • Noticeable changes in personality or mood

Stage 2 (Moderate): Stage 3 (Severe): This stage may last 1 to 3 years. During this final stage, people may lose the ability to feed themselves, speak, recognize people and control bodily functions, such as swallowing or bowel and bladder control. Their memory worsens and may become almost non-existent. They will sleep often and grunting or moaning can be common. Constant care is typically necessary. In a weakened physical state, patients may become vulnerable to other illnesses, skin infections, and respiratory problems, particularly when they are unable to move around. Back to top
Symptoms of MCI may include:
  • Memory problems that are noticed by others
  • Poor performance on cognitive tests
  • Depression
  • Irritability, anxiety and sometimes aggressive or apathetic behavior
